In my situation it is an inadvertent s corp termination. One of the shareholders sold their stick to an unqualified s Corp shareholder.
Tax Professional: Lane, JD, CFP, MBA, CRPS replied 2 years ago

You don't need a PLR for this to ask for relief, although I would work with a tax pro here

...

If an S corporation inadvertently terminates its S corporation status, the IRS may grant relief. The corporation must be able to demonstrate that the termination was inadvertent. The IRS may provide relief to corporations (via a waiver) and potentially restore S status retroactively, if the following are present:

  1. The corporation previously made a valid S election and that election terminated;
  2. The subchapter S election qualification loss was triggered by an inadvertent act;
  3. The IRS determines that the termination was inadvertent;
  4. Steps are taken within a reasonable period to correct the condition that rendered the corporation ineligible to be an S corporation; and
  5. The corporation and persons who were shareholders during the period of the termination agree to make any adjustments the IRS requires that are consistent with the treatment of the corporation as an S corporation (Regs. Sec. 1.1362-4(a)).

The IRS determines whether a termination or invalid election was inadvertent. The corporation has the burden of establishing that, under the relevant facts and circumstances, the IRS should determine that the termination or invalid election was inadvertent. The fact that the terminating event or invalidity of the election was not reasonably within the control of the corporation and, in the case of a termination, was not part of a plan to terminate the election, or the fact that the terminating event or circumstance took place without the corporation’s knowledge, notwithstanding its due diligence to safeguard itself against such an event or circumstance, tends to establish that the termination or invalidity of the election was inadvertent (Regs. Sec. 1.1362-4(b)).

As the number of letter rulings involving them indicates, inadvertent terminations of S corporation status occur relatively frequently. However, if a corporation’s termination is truly inadvertent and the corporation promptly corrects the cause of the termination after it is discovered, the IRS will grant the corporation relief from the termination.

Again, you ARE asking for a ruling here, but the typical user fee for a PLR is waived.
