JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

I paid to chat with someone, not to get a emailed response. I also expect CPA. This service seems like a scam.

In this case "liquidation" woudl mean dissolution of S-corporation.
For tax purposes - that is treated as selling shares. The selling price is the value of assets distributed to shareholders upon dissolution - that is so-called liquidating distribution. If there is nothing to distribute - the selling price assumed as zero.

If you want to take over that S-corporation - you may simply purchase shares.
