As a member of the staff (CLC) team assigned to work
As a member of the staff (CLC) team assigned to work with Dave, you are assigned the individual task of developing a summary of the issues related to Dave after being in a meeting with the tax partner-in-charge.
During the latest meeting, you learned that Dave has remarried. His new spouse owns Dollar Max, Inc., and Dave has agreed to invest in Dollar Max. Dollar Max is an S-Corporation for tax purposes. Dave’s contribution consists of personal assets valued at $7,500,000. He requests information about the special tax rules that will apply to a corporation; information on what are the possible tax benefits of leverage in the corporation’s capital structure; whether or not some hybrid of debt-equity should be used; a summary of tax treatments of corporate distributions; and what would happen if they decided to liquidate her corporation with the plan to merge her operations assets into one of his companies; and whether or not a merger could be done tax free especially if an S Corporation structure was to be used.
You are to work independently of the CLC Team but use the CLC report being developed for Module Three with the anticipation that your work will be merged with that of other staff members.
Please refer to the assignment grading rubric at the assignment’s drop box for information regarding how the assignment will be graded. Prepare a two- to three-page (double-spaced) report with the required information to be submitted by the end of Module 4.
