One of the biggest tax mistakes made by businesses involves the selection of an inappropriate entity type or not properly handling the rules that apply to allow certain structures to be formed tax free. Should a client be a corporate tax entity? Is it possible that they might qualify for a tax-free exit under Section 1202 so that a C Corporation makes sense? Maybe an S election is better? Or is this all wrong and is a tax partnership structure far more appropriate? This course will help participants understand both how to advise clients to select a proper entity and how to structure the formation to reduce or totally eliminate immediate taxation.

Who should take this program?

CPAs, accountants, and financial professionals who advise clients that start new business ventures.
