From a tax point of view, there is no difference between a formal dividend and a constructive dividend.Distributions by C corporations are treated as dividends to the extent of the corporation's current or accumulated earnings and profits (AE&P). On that date, it has ,000 in AAA and ,000 in E&P.However, a special rule provides relief to the shareholders of a corporation that has terminated its S corporation status. (The AAA represents undistributed net income that has been passed through and taxed at the shareholder level; the AAA balance generally can be distributed to the shareholder without causing additional shareholder-level tax.) The PTTP represents a last chance to bail previously taxed cash and basis out of the corporation in a tax-free manner.Individuals with modified adjusted gross income above a certain threshold (0,000 for married filing jointly, 0,000 for single filers, and 5,000 for married filing separately) may also owe the 3.8% net investment income tax (Sec. Net investment income includes dividends less expenses properly allocable to the dividends.This means that the tax rate applicable to a redemption taxed as a nonliquidating corporate distribution (taxable dividend to the extent of the corporation's E&P) may actually be 18.8% (15% 3.8%) or 23.8% (20% 3.8%).

What is the amount of income from the LLC that Burgundy, Inc., must report for its tax year ending April 30, 2017? LO.3, 7, 9, 12 Bryan and Cody each contributed 0,000 to the newly formed BC Partnership in exchange for a 50% interest.Shareholders recognize a taxable dividend to the extent a distribution is paid out of corporate earnings and profits (E&P).If the distribution exceeds E&P, the excess reduces the shareholder's stock basis.
