The Code treats corporate distributions that are a return from a shareholders investment as sales or exchanges and corporate distributions that are a return of a shareholders investment as dividends. ____ 2. For tax purposes, all stock redemptions are treated as dividend distributions. ____ 3. Noncorporate shareholders generally prefer a nonqualified stock redemption over a qualifying stock redemption due to the availability of the dividends received deduction. ____ 4. A shareholders basis in property received in a stock redemption is the propertys fair market value. ____ 5. A shareholders holding period of property acquired in a stock redemption begins on the date of the distribution. ____ 6. Vireo Corporation redeemed shares from its sole shareholder pursuant to a written agreement between the parties that clearly identified the transaction as a stock redemption (and not a dividend distribution). Since the agreement is binding under state law, the shareholder will receive sale or exchange treatment with respect to the redemption. ____ 7. In applying the stock attribution rules to a stock redemption, stock owned by a shareholder who owns 65% of a corporation is deemed to be owned in full by the corporation. ____ 8. In a not essentially equivalent redemption [ 302(b)(1)], the meaningful reduction test is an objective safe harbor rule that taxpayers can rely upon for sale or exchange treatment. ____ 9. As a result of a redemption, a shareholders interest (direct and indirect) in the corporation decreased from 58% to 45%.
