In 2022, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) released Revenue Procedure 2022 – 19 (Rev. Proc. 2022-19) to offer relief for businesses operating as S Corporations (S Corp) that have issues with their organizational documents. IRS guidance addresses six specific items that could potentially disqualify the status of an S Corp, with the most important of these items focused on a non-identical governing provision where distributions and liquidations are not always equal.
