Basis Basis Basis for S-Corp Shareholders

Do you prepare tax returns for S-Corporations or for S-Corporation shareholders? You will not want to miss this session!

One of the biggest challenges we face in preparing those tax returns is the calculation of shareholder basis. In this course, you will learn how profits and losses, distributions, dividends and shareholder loans affect basis. What about losses that are limited by basis, and when can you deduct suspended losses? How do you calculate inside and outside basis?

During this webinar, we go through calculations and help you establish a solid process for establishing basis for your S-Corporation and shareholder tax clients.

Learning Objectives:
Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Define shareholder basis and how it is calculated
  • Determine the impact of shareholder loans and distributions on basis
  • Identify when deductable losses are limited by basis
  • Recognize the importance of tracking shareholder basis
