When an existing corporation considers making the S Corporation election, the potential corporate-level 'built-in gain tax' (IRC 1374) is often the most important tax cost to evaluate. Learn when and how the built-in gain tax is determined. Discuss topics that include the application of multiple 'limitations' on determining the tax and the potential use of existing corporate net operating losses and tax credits. Identify and evaluate tax planning ideas and strategies.
