Avoiding the Pitfalls of Built-in Capital Gains Tax (converting from C to S Corporations)

This topic is the subject of an IRS audit campaign.

Converting from C corporation to S corporation status can benefit many companies from tax and operation standpoints. C corporation owners can convert their company to an S corporation without triggering an immediately taxable transaction in most cases. However, several potential tax traps can arise in a conversion if not properly planned. One of the most frequent and costly tax implications of a C-to-S conversion is the built-in-gains (BIG) tax of Internal Revenue Code Section 1374.

Taxable BIG occurs when an S corporation sells or distributes certain specified assets within five years after its conversion date from C corporation status, or when a converted S corporation acquires assets with a carry-over basis from a predecessor C corporation. Because the BIG tax is imposed at the top tax rate for corporations, tax advisers should look closely at asset planning before completing the S corporation conversion. This course provides guidance on how tax practitioners can help their clients avoid the pitfalls of BIG tax.
