Selling an S Corporation – How to Choose the Right Structure

There are multiple tax structures available for the sale of an S corporation.  Beyond the normal choices of a stock sale or an asset sale, the seller and buyer can agree to use a hybrid structure in which a sale of corporate equity is treated, for tax purposes, as a sale of corporate assets, thereby permitting the buyer to claim a stepped-up tax basis in depreciable operating assets.  This seminar will explain Section 338(h)(10) elections and their close cousins, Section 336(e) elections.  It will also discuss the “F reorg/LLC conversion” structure that has become popular in recent years.
