Taxpayer is an S Corp. 2014 is the final year of the corporation. Shareholder A loaned $200,000 to S Corp in prior years. $120,000 of the loan has been used for shareholder losses in prior years. The beginning debt basis is $80,000 as of 1/1/14. The Scorp is insolvent and the ending balance sheet contains only the $200,000 of loans payable to Shareholder A at 12/31/14. 1 - Is the $200,000 cancelled debt excluded from the shareholder's income due to insolvency of the S Corp? 2 - If so, does the tax exemptincome increase the shareholder's basis in the debt and subsequently allow the shareholder a loss on the bad debt to the extent of the restored basis of $200,000?
I am contemplating selling approximately 25% interest in a
I am contemplating selling approximately 25% interest in a family farm corporation that my brother and I own with our kids or kid's trust back to the corporation as treasury stock. My 25% interest represents 100% of my personal interest while I still managemy children's trust which has approximately 11% ownership (at this time my children's trust would not be sold back to the corp). I am concerned about how IRS would treat the sale of my personal shares of 25%.....would they look at it as a long term capitalgain or am I faced with an ordinary dividend distribution? If it is an ordinary dividend distribution, then maybe you can give me some advice or how I can legally structure myself to receive cash for the sale of my stock in a different way?
