Practical Guide to S Corporations (Fourth Edition) is written by noted practitioner, author and lecturer Michael Schlesinger. This new Fourth Edition contains extensive discussion of the changes brought about by the Pension Protection Act of 2006 and the Small Business and Work Opportunity Tax Act of 2007. It also covers Treasury regulations related to the Code Sec. 199 manufacturing deduction, as well as cases, rulings and pronouncements issued since the Third Edition.Comprised of fifteen chapters, this book starts by considering the tax advantages of electing S corporation status. The middle chapters, Chapters 2-12, detail the operations of S corporations, discussing statutory requirements, taxpayers who qualify as shareholders, and considerations when converting a C corporation to S status. Chapter 13 provides a comparison of S corporations to other business entities such as limited liability companies, partnerships, and C corporations. Chapter 14 discusses S corporation subsidiaries, and Chapter 15 covers employee stock ownership plans (ESOPs) for S corporations.The book also includes detailed reference material. The Index provides the best access to particular information, but the Contents in Detail can be used as a “second index” for quick entry into the topics. The Appendices supply sample language that can be used in practice, and the Case Table and Finding Lists compile all of the cases, statutes, rulings, and regulations documented throughout the chapters.S corporations are the most popular business entity type, and this updated CCH resource helps practitioners understand and manage individual S corps election, compliance, tax, planning and life-cycle needs. It explains the merits and limitations of S corps in relation to other entity choices and provides clear and practical guidance. Readers will appreciate the Michael Schlesinger's real-world insights and crystal-clear analysis of even the most complex subjects.
