CCH Federal Taxation Complete Liquidations—Overview Why a complete liquidation? In a complete liquidation, shareholders surrender all of their stock in the corporation and receive their pro rata shares of any remaining assets after all creditors have been paid. Why do this? For any one of several reasons: 1. To avoid double taxation—the corporate tax on earnings, and the tax on dividends received by individual shareholders. 2. To procure cash and other assets for alternative purposes. 3. To sell the corporation’s assets to a buyer unwilling to purchase the stock. Chapter 16, Exhibit 1a

CCH Federal Taxation 4. To “abandon ship” future prospects look dismal, and on- going losses cannot provide tax benefits to the corporation or its shareholders without future profits to offset. 5. To recognize capital losses at the shareholder level where, unlike corporations, they are deductible up to $3,000. Moreover, shareholders may wish to use the capital losses to offset capital gains from their personal investments. 6. To avoid corporate penalty taxes such as the personal holding company tax or the accumulated earnings tax.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
