Topic 1 From the shareholder's tax perspective do you think it would be better for a company to liquidate or reorganize? Explain your position. Professor and Class Main Post, While reading this weeks reading material I learned that if a situation occurres a company comes into a situation they can either reorganize or liquidate depending on the situation at hand and what they can do for that situstion. If the company plans to reorganize it would help them stay in business and they could take care of their debts during a certain time period.

In my opinion the best alternative would be for the compsny to reorganize because they could stay in business and not have to liquidate any thing.
