Corporate Tax & the Case for an Increase

In the world of tax, including corporate tax, change is a foundational concept. We see it constantly .  The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 was no exception.  Deductions which were formerly available are suddenly unavailable.  Individual brackets which seemed perfectly stable are modified.  Loopholes, at least some of them, close as the Internal Revenue Service […]

Various Section 368 Reorganizations

In our previous post on corporate reorganizations under IRC Section 368, we mentioned that corporations can select between several variations of  Sec. 368 reorganizations.

Sec. 368 Reorganization Taxation
