In a proportionate nonliquidating distribution of a capital asset

Basis adjustments to shareholders` stock are determined under Section 1367(a). If X distributes undivided interests in appreciated property worth ,000 (with a basis of ,000) pro rata to its four 25 percent shareholders. The four shareholders each receive a basis in the distributed property of ,500.

Assuming no other gain or loss recognition by X for the year, its accumulated adjustments account is increased from ,000 to ,000 and decreased by the ,000 dis­tribution to net out at

Disproportionate distributions to the shareholders also cause concern.Such distributions may indicate that more than one class of stock is involved, which could invalidate the corporation`s S election.Although regulations have not been proposed with respect to the single class of stock requirement, a pattern of discriminatory dispro­portionate distributions indicates that the corporation has more than one class of stock and each class has different rights with respect to the corporation`s profits and assets.However, Section 1231 excludes from capital gain treatment any inventory or property held primarily for sale in the ordinary course of the corporation`s trade or business.In addition, Sections 12 require that any depreciation recapture inherent in the gain be reclassified as ordinary income.

Any amount of the distribution remaining after exhaustion of the earnings and profits is applied (as in the case of a corporation having no earnings and profits), first against the shareholder`s remaining basis, and then as gain from the sale or exchange of the stock. Under Section 1366(f), if corporate-level taxes are imposed by Section 1374 or 1375, the ,000 gain (and accompanying basis ad­justment) is reduced by any such taxes.
