Private companies should take advantage of Rev. Proc. 2013-30, which provides significant relief for late S corporation elections

Private Company Services Tax Insight
As part of year-end tax diligence, sell-side due diligence, or prior to an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) examination, it is advisable that private companies operating as S corporations confirm whether they have timely S corporation elections in place.  

In this regard, the IRS recently released Rev. Proc. 2013-30, which provides relief to taxpayers who failed to timely file certain elections, including S corporation elections, electing small business trust (ESBT) elections , qualified subchapter S trust (QSST) elections, qualified subchapter S subsidiary (QSub) elections,  and corporate classification elections.   Rev. Proc. 2013-30 also consolidates the relief provisions provided for in prior revenue procedures and extends the time period for relief in certain circumstances.
