395.0000 OCCASIONAL SALES—SALE OF A BUSINESS—BUSINESS REORGANIZATION—Regulation 1595
(k) DISSOLUTION; LIQUIDATION; DISTRIBUTION OF ASSETS
395.2475 Stock Exchanged for Corporation Assets. Corporation X had several branch offices selling and servicing automobiles. Pursuant to the policy of the manufacturer of the automobiles to decentralize its dealers, it was decided to create separate entities at each branch, otherwise all branches would lose their franchise. Accordingly, a contract was entered into whereby two of the three shareholders each turned his one-third interest as shareholder over to the corporation in exchange for one-third of the assets of the corporation.
The transfer of the property to the former shareholders for their shares is a taxable transaction. In this case corporation X was not dissolved since there was no distribution of the entire assets to its shareholders. Only two of the three shareholders exchanged their stock for assets of the corporation. 1/25/52.
