This effectively gives the shareholder a credit to apply against the earned income when it is ultimately distributed to the shareholder, ensuring that the income is only taxed once.The shareholder’s basis is decreased (but not below zero) by the shareholder’s share of the S corporation’s items of loss and deduction, nondeductible expenses (except expenses that are not chargeable to the capital account), depletion deduction for oil and gas property, and distributions to the shareholder that are not made from accumulated earnings and profits.When one company merges with another, both sides generally want to avoid recognizing any gain on the transaction.

The tax consequences of distributions by an S corporation to a shareholder depend on the shareholder’s basis in the S corporation stock.

Distributions to the shareholder are not included in the shareholder’s gross income to the extent that the distribution does not exceed the shareholder’s basis in the stock.

This is done through a system of rules that track and adjust the shareholder’s stock basis.

While there are some differences, the S corporation basis system is similar to the rules that apply to partnerships.

The capital gain is treated as long-term or short-term depending on whether you owned the shares for longer than a year.

If you purchased the stock at different times, divide the dividends into short-term and long-term proportionally, based on when each block of stock was acquired.

Only the amount that exceeds the taxpayer's basis in the stock is capital; this is taxed as a capital gain.

The basis in the stock is how much the taxpayer paid to obtain the stock.

Because the tax consequences of distributions depend on the shareholder’s basis, it is important to keep up with changes in the shareholder’s basis over time.

A shareholder’s basis in his S corporation stock is increased by the share of the S corporation income that is passed through to the shareholder.
