H c liquidating corporation in
Part of dissolving your corporation involves liquidating corporate assets since the corporation can’t own assets when it is no longer in business.
If you own shares in a corporation that makes liquidating distributions to you, the IRS treats the transaction as a sale or exchange of your stock.
When a corporation liquidates all of its assets to shareholders, it generally recognizes a taxable gain or loss, though a number of rules exist that limit a corporation's ability to report losses.
The corporation is also treated as if the property is sold at fair market value.
Therefore, you must determine how much your corporation owes to each creditor.
If your corporation does not have enough assets to cover all of your debts, you may need to negotiate a debt settlement with each creditor before your business can close.
