Whether or not your S corporation should make a QSub election for a wholly owned subsidiary is a big decision. Be sure you are informed so you can best advise your clients on the QSub election. You will learn the tax ramifications and mechanics of making such an election.

  • Determine eligibility for the QSub election.
  • Complete Form 8869, Qualified Subchapter S Subsidiary Election.
  • Explain timing of deemed liquidations of subsidiary corporations.
  • Identify for which purposes a subsidiary is treated as a separate entity from the parent corporation.
