2 Credits: Taxes

Course Description

This course describes the primary failures of S corporations to attain or maintain their desired tax status. Fortunately, there are provisions that allow these companies to overcome certain S corporation requirements. This program explains the remedies for certain late elections by S corporations and their shareholders. The materials differentiate the situations that can be remedied by an Internal Revenue Service Center from those that require a ruling from the IRS National Office, which required payment of an expensive user fee. This material also includes solutions for S corporations, including unincorporated entities which have elected to be S corporations, to remedy certain class of stock violations. It distinguishes between the “single fault” problems which the corporation can remedy internally, from the “double fault” problems which require ruling requests.
