This course covers the federal income taxation of corporations. It follows the tax life of a corporation, from its formation, to its distribution of cash or property to shareholders, to its eventual liquidation. It also covers the tax aspects of corporate mergers, acquisitions, and divisions, such as the spin-off of a corporate subsidiary. Although most of the emphasis is on large, publicly traded, Subchapter C corporations, the course covers the contrasting tax treatment of smaller, Subchapter S corporations as well. The course does not require any mathematical expertise and is designed for those considering general or corporate practice as well as for students with a special interest in tax law.
