Alan Holloway quoted in Oklahoman on forthcoming IRS audit of S Corporations

published in The Oklahoman | August 3, 2005

Tax attorney Alan Holloway was quoted in an Oklahoman article about the Internal Revenue Service and its plans to audit 5,000 randomly selected Subchapter S corporations.

In the article, Holloway states that violation of a single one of the IRS restrictions on S corporations – some of which concern behavior of even a single shareholder – can make all the pass-through income taxable at the corporate rate.

“If you tried to make an S corporation election and don’t meet one of the many requirements, you suddenly owe tax on all of that,” said Holloway.  “It’s no longer eligible to flow through to shareholders.”
