Today’s state of the American economy has left small businesses especially vulnerable to financial distress. Foreclosure, bankruptcy and insolvency have become commonplace terminology. When S corporations encounter these predicaments, special rules apply at the corporate level and at the shareholder level. Learn how to properly report foreclosures and debt cancellations for S corporations that are either insolvent or bankrupt, and determine the tax impact on the shareholders.

Upon completion of this course, the tax professional will be able to:

  • Determine if the S corporation is bankrupt or insolvent.
  • Report a property foreclosure and cancellation of debt income for an S corporation.
  • Exclude cancellation of debt income from gross income.
