My article about Qualified Subchapter S Subsidiaries was published in the September 2016 issue of the Journal of Taxation, a Thomson Reuters publication. The article offers an in-depth discussion of the QSub qualification requirements, the election, late filing relief, termination and inadvertent termination relief. It also provides a broad discussion of various QSub planning opportunities as well as potential pitfalls. I hope it is informative and offers you some useful information for application in your tax practices.
A copy of the article is available for download on the GSB website.
Please join me at the NYU 75th Institute on Federal Taxation (IFT) taking place in New York City on October 23-28, 2016, and in San Diego, California on November 13-18, 2016.
The IFT is one of the leading tax conferences in the country, geared specifically for CPAs and attorneys who regularly are involved in federal tax matters. Now in my fourth year as an IFT presenter, I am pleased to once again speak on the closely-held business panel on October 27 (NYC) and November 17 (San Diego). My presentation this year will focus on entity classification under the Check-the-Box regulations. I plan to provide an in-depth view of the regulations, including planning opportunities, traps that exist for the unwary and practical tax practitioner guidance.
As in previous years, the IFT will cover a wide range of fascinating topics, including tax controversies, executive compensation and employee benefits, international taxation, corporate taxation, real estate taxation, partnership taxation, taxation of closely-held businesses, trusts and estates, and ethics.
I look forward to seeing you at IFT in either New York or San Diego!
