This course is designed to illustrate in both theory and practice overarching principles that govern S Corporations from formation to revocation, termination and liquidation. Experienced client-facing staff should be aware of the pitfalls that may inadvertently cause an S-status termination or may generate unintended tax consequences to shareholders.
