S Corporations: How To Avoid Common And Often Overlooked Pitfalls
|Date / Time:
The S corporation is an attractive type of entity in that it offers limited liability for its shareholders while avoiding the double taxation experienced by C corporations.
However, there are several requirements that must be met in order for companies to do business as S corporations that, if not met, may result in undesirable consequences. These pitfalls may lead to termination of the S election and additional tax for the corporation or the shareholder, or both.
Furthermore, given the tumultuous legislative environment, the tax rules that apply to S corporations and their shareholders are constantly changing, providing both pitfalls and opportunities.
This webinar helps the S corporation shareholder or professional services provider understand the tax rules that govern S corporations and their shareholders and avoid unintended consequences.
We will highlight common transactions that have negative, but avoidable, impacts and will also present opportunities for S corporations and their shareholders that exist in the current regulatory environment.
This webinar is critical for business owners and professional service providers so they can ensure proper operation of their business from a tax perspective and quality tax services for their clients.

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
