2010 tax return draft is being reviewed. The tax professionals noted that:
An IC DISC associated with an S-corp was effective throughout the tax year and qualified DISC distributions were made. The shareholder of the S-corp and the DISC were the same individual "J" through Apr 10. In Apr 10 the DISC interests and S-corp stock were assigned to a grantor trust in which "J" is sole beneficiary and which has a qualification to hold S-corp interests. The tax CPA thinks the DISC may no longer be valid due to the transfer of individual interests to that of the grantor trust. What is your opinion?
