CHAPTER 20 SOLUTIONS END OF CHAPTER QUESTIONS COVERED IN LECTURE – NOT COLLECTED : 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 14, 15, 16, (16 Not Included Homework Problem), 17, 25, 26, 27, AND 29. 7. The statement is incorrect. When a subsidiary corporation liquidates under § 332, gains and losses are not recognized on distributions to the parent corporation. However, distributions to minority shareholders are subject to the same rules applicable to nonliquidating distributions.
