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 also covers the contrasting tax treatment of Subchapter S corporations, which is how many small businesses choose to be taxed. 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.
