Welcome to Just Answer. I am here to help you resolve your tax and finance concerns. Please feel free to ask anytime you need extra help.


 


The actual stock ownership in the S Corporation will dictate whose return the K-1 gets reflected on. There is not an option to split it if the stock is in one name. If the stock is owned jointly then, on a separate return the name and Social Security number appearing first will dictate.





OK,

In a corporation, income should be distributed (hence go on K-1s) in proportion to stock ownership.

(This is why many prefer the LLC or partnership. The income, losses and other allocations can be dictated and allocated any way that the owners desire in the OPERATING AGREEMENT.)

In the S-Corp (or common shares of ANY corp) income is distributed in proportion of stock owned only.





HOWEVER, we now have the issue of whether property in the entirety can be divided as it relates to income tax issues.

The court case that gives rise to the IRS' current policy regarding income produced from a property owned in the entirety actually comes from debtor-creditor law, as it relates to IRS attachments.

Historically, the laws of many states, and court decisions, have prohibited a creditor with a claim against only one spouse from creating a lien or foreclosing on property held by the entirety. Even the IRS had acquiesced on this point. This changed in 2002 with the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in U.S. v. Craft.

UNITED STATES, petitioner,v.Sandra L. CRAFT.

U.S. v. Craft, 535 U.S. 274 (2002)





The IRS then issued a Bulletin in September 2003, setting forth general principles it will rely on in addressing issues raised as a result of the Craft decision:

The part of that bulletin that applies here is point number 5 of the ruling:

"As a general rule the taxpayer's interest in entireties property will be deemed to be one-half."

Notice 2003-60 (IRS NOT), 2003-39 I.R.B. 643, 2003-2 C.B. 643, 2003 WL 22100950



Also note one of the primary holdings of the Craft Decision

" property as a “bundle of sticks,” that is, a collection of individual rights which, in certain combinations, constitute property, state law determines only which sticks are in a person's bundle; whether those sticks qualify as “property” for purposes of the federal tax statute is a question of federal law."

26 U.S.C.A. § 6321. AND U.S. v. Craft, 535 U.S. 274 (2002)




What the previous answer gave you was a tax administration practice, the typical procedure.


In my professional opinion, ...

(1) the Craft Case (a Supreme court Holding that reversed the earlier District court Us v Craft decision) ...

(2) § 6321 of the Tax Code and

(3) the 2003 IRS bulletin


... all support you to treat this as either joint income on a joint return, (2) 1/2 income on each respective separate return.




26 U.S.C.A. § 6321.

U.S. v. Craft, 535 U.S. 274 (2002)

Notice 2003-60 - 2003-39 I.R.B. 643, 2003-2 C.B. 643, 2003

Just a quick follow-up, Julie.

If you do decide to go the separate return route, write the following as a notation at the top of Schedule E -Part II Income or Loss From Partnerships and S Corporation:

"Pursuant to Notice 2003-60 - 2003-39 I.R.B. 643, 2003-2 C.B. 643, 2003"

Hope this helps
