Question description

From the e-Activity, evaluate the appropriateness of the techniques used and the common issues pursued by the IRS in corporate liquidations and dissolutions. Create an argument to defend the client if the IRS pursues the assignment of income doctrine or the clear reflection of income doctrine on a cash-basis corporation, as reflected in the Examining Officers Guide (EOG).

IRC Section 338 allows a deemed sale election generating immediate taxation to the target corporation and a stepped-up or stepped-down basis to the price paid by the acquiring corporation for the target corporation stock plus liabilities on the deemed sale. Examine at least one (1) benefit of a Section IRC 338 liquidation election for a target corporation. Create a situation which demonstrates a favorable IRC Section 338 liquidation election for a target corporation.
