This course is the second in a series of four courses covering the significant areas of corporate transactional taxation, including corporate organizations, dividends and other non-liquidating distributions, stock redemptions, liquidations, spin-offs and other corporate divisions, reorganizations and tax attributes.

This course focuses deeply on corporate redemptions and transfers of stock among commonly controlled corporations. It reviews in detail the tax implications of those transactions to all affected parties, including shareholders as well as the participating corporations. In addition to discussing the key US tax provisions, regulations and case law, it describes planning considerations and discusses how the relevant tax rules apply to common fact patterns.

This course is ideal for tax professionals, financial accountants and management accountants that wish to develop or refresh expertise in corporate transactions. CFOs and other finance professionals who have some familiarity with tax and wish to increase their understanding of the area will also find it useful.

I had lots of problems with this one not being a tax guy...and I wonder whether a few of the questions were wrong..they refer to a "Q" where I don't see that label anywhere...not sure if the questions were re-written at one time and "Q" survived in error. This is the best example of me needing answers/explanations after the fact to see why I was!

Probably good to get rid of my review...perhaps the Q comment related to the review questions...but regardless, it would be helpful to understand the ultimate reasoning for correct answers.
