What happens if a client sold his stock last year prior to a drop in stock rates this year? Can you help undo the transaction? How about a client who transferred valuable intellectual property to an offshore subsidiary, mistakenly thinking it would save taxes? What if a client tells you that he made a gift of stock in his company to his child last year, but they never got around to documenting anything? In the meantime, the value of the stock has likely increased. Can he sign the documents making the gift showing last year’s date? The tax law principles of backdating and rescission affect a taxpayer’s ability to “undo” a transaction and to execute the documents recording a tax event. This course explains these doctrines, illustrating their application with many practical examples.
