  • IRC 355: Understanding the Basics of a Tax-Free Spin-off

    One disadvantage of forming a Subchapter C corporation is the unfortunate reality of “double taxation.” The first level of taxation occurs when the business pays corporate income taxes on its profits. The second level occurs when the previously taxed profits are distributed to shareholders as dividends. Even if the corporation does not have sufficient cash flow and decides to distribute property that has appreciated in value to its shareholders, the tax is typically unavoidable.
  • Missteps in Conducting Financial Forensic Investigations

    There is a minefield of mistakes to avoid in the iterative process of conducting a fraud investigation. Costly missteps can occur with inadequate planning, failure to preserve documentary evidence, or poorly conducted interviews.
