Understanding S Corporations: From Cradle to Grave, Part 1



Watch Now!
Recording and Slides are Available Here


The S corporation is the most widely chosen form of corporate taxation. There are more than twice as many corporations electing to be taxed as S corporations than C corporations. Advantages including asset protection, pass-through taxation and the ability to manage salary and dividend payments are among the desirable S corporation features. But S corporations are not as “simple” as they may seem. Many rules must be observed. There are limits on who can be a shareholder, how many shareholders are allowed and the type of shares available. Strict profit and loss allocations apply. There are numerous “traps for the unwary” that may result in unexpected taxation, loss of S status, and difficult election decisions.

In his exclusive 2-part LISI Webinar, Steve Siegel addresses these issues and more, from starting the S Corporation and owning it properly to operating it and ultimately passing it on to heirs or purchasers. You can register for Parts 1 & 2 at a special limited time discount by CLICKING THIS LINK
