Course Description

This webinar comes to you with the most recent updates of S Corporations issues. These subjects are considered crucial insights as they influence many parts of the S-Corporation operations and business outcome. The topics included are as follows:

Major Topics:

  • Reasonable compensation for shareholder-employees.
  • The types of debt that provide basis to shareholders. 
  • Fixing technical violations of S corporation’s eligibility rules.

How do you determine reasonable compensation? Between 2010 and 2013, a number of cases and IRS enforcement came up with the question of reasonable compensation. CPAs, tax, and financial advisors are constantly facing the issues regarding determining reasonable compensation. It will cover every important case and provide practical methods to calculate how much compensation is reasonable. Unlike C corporations, every year a shareholder’s stock basis in an S corporation changes based on the operations. It will cover basis increases that arise from shareholder debt: what works and what doesn’t work. At the last, it will cover what happens when an S corporation is inadvertently terminated – how you can get the train back on the track. 

This webinar will provide unique value to the CPAs, Enrolled Agents, and Tax preparers. 

Learning Objectives

  • To identify methods to determine reasonable compensation.
  • To restructure loans to provide basis to a shareholder.
  • To recognize the actions you can take if an S-Corp has ineligible shareholders or two classes of stock.

The information presented was timely and factual and will be of benefit when I prepare returns for my customers.


The instructor knew what he was speaking about. I was very impressed that he gave actual IRS tax court cases. He presented things in a very clear and concise manner. I left feeling educated in an area that I needed to know more information in.


Mr. White presented the information is an understandable, clear fashion. I mainly prepare individual returns. However, my husband has an s-corp for which I am the bookkeeper. I took this course to better understand the concept of "reasonable compensation". As a result of taking this course I will be discussing changes we need to make in terms of salary verses distributions.


It was a great experience, especially if I could not do the webinar at the exact time I was still able to join the webinar.....


Probably my favorite webinar to date. Very informative, great use of case studies and exactly the right length.


This was my first CPE with your company and I really enjoyed the speaker and the material covered.
