IRS Rev. Proc. 2022-19: Relief for S Corporation Owners
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.
Barry Weins, Tax Director, joins this episode of the Tax Beat podcast with Brooks Nelson, Partner and Strategic Tax Leader, and Sarah McGregor, Tax Director, to share more about Rev. Proc. 2022-19 and the benefits it brings to S Corps.
