The primary users are the 3 current owners including yourself who take an active role in managing the company.

Section 351 also prevents the recognition of losses on transfers of property that has declined in value. Question 14-20 What tax years are available to corporations? How do the options differ from other forms of business organizations?
As a C-corporation the business, not the owner, would be held liable for any financial damages. Any accidents involving employees or customers would be the responsibility of the corporation to settle.
