There, My ex-wife and I are 50/50 owners of a CA c-corp
Hi there, My ex-wife and I are 50/50 owners of a CA c-corp that we used for many years to bill clients for consulting services. She quit in 2011. I was awarded the corp. Our final judgment says that she has no claims to distributions/loans/etc since 2011.
She has a stock cert that she is supposed to sign to remove herself as a shareholder, but she hasn't done it yet. The business was suspended by the CA FTB end of 2013 and has been inactive for over a year. I just want to file past due 2012-2014 returns and
shut it down. The challenge is that I took ~$100K in loans from the corp in 2012 through 2014 and I need to properly account for those and pay the appropriate personal income taxes. I don't have any assets and so can't pay back the business, so I somehow need
to declare it as income and pay the appropriate taxes. Any ideas on how to do this?
