Speaker: Patrick Dimmitt, EA, MST

During Part 1 of this course, we will explore initial year tax elections made, specifically their tax treatment going forward and the impact on the tax liability of the entity over the years. Consider tax handling of items between the owner and C corporation, as well as, other related entities of the C corporation where there is common ownership.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define Organizational expenses and start-up costs and tax treatment.
  • Review options for Capital expenses, De minimis safe harbor (capitalize vs expense equipment), and improvement versus repair expense.
  • Analysis of reasonable compensation of owners; owner fringe benefits and dividends paid on C corporation profit.
  • Consider items between owners and entity, and review treatment when taxpayers are not on the same accounting method as C corporation.
  • Controlled Group entities and impact on tax filings of group members.
