This seminar discusses, in a practical way, how an S corporation shareholder calculates their stock and loan basis on Form 7203. Form 7203 is the new IRS Form on which a shareholder is sometimes required to calculate their stock and loan basis. This topic is particularly important when an S corporation has a loss and the shareholders wish to know whether they are entitled to fully utilize the loss that has been allocated to them against their other income.


  • Introduction to Form 7203
  • Introduction to the calculation of stock basis
  • Introduction to the calculation of loan basis
  • Taxable and nontaxable S corporation distributions to shareholders
