Amended Tax Return and IRS Resolution

I was initially worried about picking someone off the internet but your testimonials sold me so I would more than happy to assist and hopefully the next person will be at ease choosing to utilize your services. I am pleased to write you to let you know I received a response from the IRS in response to the schedule C you assisted with filing. They responded saying the information supplied was sufficient and they have closed discrepancy. I spoke with the IRS and they said no tax is due. I asked even though I did make a $400 profit and they said again no tax liability is showing that the case was closed. I just wanted to thank you again for your assistance with this issue.

Form 1120-S CPA discusses Tax Court decision that keeps Roth IRAs from being Shareholders in S Corporations

Form 1120-S CPA discusses an S Corporation Tax Court case

Gary Bode, CPA: My firm operates as an S Corporation, so you know I stay on top of developing issues. For a free initial phone consult please call (910) 399-2705.

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a Tax Court case stating that Roth IRAs cannot be shareholders in an S Corporation. While the Ninth Circuit has limited national scope, the west coast, Form 1120-S CPAs worry this decision will eventually become national, perhaps even adding prohibitive wording to the underlying Revenue Ruling 92-73.

Traditional IRAs are specifically mentioned as ineligible to be S Corporation shareholders in Revenue Ruling 92-73. And understandably so, since S Corporations are pass through entities whose profits are taxed currently through their shareholder’s Form 1040. Traditional IRAs defer taxation until retirement. And yes, I understand the differences between a traditional IRA and a Roth IRA. While Revenue Ruling 92-73 precedes the creation of Roth IRAs, and doesn’t specifically mention them, I wouldn’t have advised a client that a Roth IRA should be an S Corporation shareholder. But maybe there was some overwhelming potential advantage for this taxpayer I don’t know about.

Why do Form 1120-S scrutinize Tax Court cases?

Tax Court cases often precede tax regulation changes. They tell us which way the wind is blowing. Sometimes we can proceed with tax strategies before they become regulations, subject to the client’s potential tax savings and risk sensitivity.
