Tax law question

Can shares of an S corp be sold to a C corp?


Hi, I will be happy to assist you, and it is my goal to make you a very satisfied customer! This may take a few minutes, so thanks for your patience.

Customer: No problem

An S corporation must be owned by an individual and certain trusts. Thus, a C corporation cannot own an S corporation. If it bought the S corporation, the S corporation status would be lost and the corporation would then be treated as a regular C corporation.


Customer: Thanks that is what I needed, not what I wanted to hear, but what I needed to know

You're welcome. I would be grateful if you could please leave me a positive rating or providing the information that you needed. Thanks and have a great day!

Customer: Will do
