General Instructions Section references are to the Internal Revenue Code unless otherwise noted. Purpose of Form A reporting corporation must file Form 8806 to report an acquisition of control or a substantial change in the capital structure of a domestic corporation. The reporting corporation or any shareholder is required to recognize gain (if any) under section 367(a) and the related regulations as a result of the transaction. Definitions Acquisition of Control of a Corporation Generally, an acquisition of control of a corporation (first corporation) occurs if, in a transaction or series of related transactions: • Before an acquisition of stock of the first corporation (directly or indirectly) by the second corporation, the second corporation does not have control of the first corporation; • After the acquisition, the second corporation has control of the first corporation; • The fair market value of the stock acquired in the transaction and in any related transactions as of the date or dates on which such stock was acquired is $100 million or more; • The shareholders of the first corporation receive stock or other property pursuant to the acquisition; and • The first corporation or any shareholder of the first corporation is required to recognize gain (if any) under section 367(a) and the related regulations, as a result of the transaction. Control. Control means the ownership of stock possessing at least 50% of the total combined voting power of all classes of stock entitled to vote or at least 50% of the total value of shares of all classes of stock. Substantial Change in Capital Structure of a Corporation A corporation has a substantial change in capital structure if it has a change in capital structure and the amount of any cash and the fair market value of any other property (including the value of any stock) provided to the shareholders of the corporation pursuant to the change in capital structure, as of the date or dates on which the cash or other property is provided, is $100 million or more. Generally, a corporation has a change in capital structure if: 1. The corporation in a transaction or series of transactions: • Merges, consolidates, or otherwise combines with another corporation or transfers all or substantially all of its assets to one or more corporations; • Transfers all or part of its assets to another corporation in a Title 11 or similar case and, in pursuance of the plan, distributes stock or securities of that corporation; or • Changes its identity, form, or place of organization; and 2. The corporation or any shareholder is required to recognize gain (if any) under section 367(a) and the related regulations, as a result of the transaction. Receipt of property. A shareholder is treated as receiving property (or as having property provided to it) related to an acquisition of control or a substantial change in capital structure if a liability of the shareholder is assumed in the transaction and, as a result of the transaction, an amount is realized by the shareholder from the sale or exchange of stock. Reporting Corporation A reporting corporation is a corporation whose stock was acquired in an acquisition of control or that had a substantial change in its capital structure. Acquiring Corporation The acquiring corporation is any corporation that acquired control of the reporting corporation or received assets from the reporting corporation pursuant to a substantial change in capital structure of the reporting corporation. Who Must File A reporting corporation is required to file Form 8806 if the reporting corporation or any shareholder is required to recognize gain (if any) as a result of the application of section 367(a) to the transaction. If the reporting corporation transfers all or substantially all of its assets to an acquiring corporation in a transaction that constitutes a substantial change in the capital structure of the reporting corporation and the reporting corporation does not file Form 8806, then the acquiring corporation must file Form 8806. If neither corporation files Form 8806, both corporations are jointly and severally liable for any applicable penalties. See Penalties for Failure To File below. Corporations Not Required To File Do not file Form 8806: • For transactions that were properly reported under section 6043(a); or • If the reporting corporation reasonably determines that all of its shareholders who receive cash, stock, or other property related to the acquisition of control or substantial change in capital structure are exempt recipients under Regulations section 1.6043-4(b)(5). When To File File Form 8806, within 45 days after the transaction, or if earlier by January 5th of the year following the calendar year in which the acquisition of control or substantial change in capital structure occurred. Where To File Mail Form 8806 to: Internal Revenue Service Large Business and International Division Attention: PFTS 1111 Constitution Ave., NW Washington, DC 20224 Penalties for Failure To File Form 8806 and all Forms 1099-CAP, Changes in Corporate Control and CAUTION Capital Structure, required to be filed under Regulations sections 1.6043-4(a) and (b) will be considered as one return for purposes of the failure to file penalty under section 6652(l). If a correct Form 8806 is not filed by the due date of the corporation’s income tax return, including extensions, it may be penalized $500 for each day the return is late, up to a maximum of $100,000. The penalty will not be imposed if the corporation can show that the failure to file on time was due to reasonable cause. See the corporation’s income tax return for information on reasonable cause. Additional penalties may apply under sections 7203, 7206, and 7207. Note: Failure to file also includes the requirement to file on magnetic media (such as electronic filing) as required by section 6011(e) and Regulations section 301.6011-2. ! ▲ Information Returns Regarding Shareholders A corporation required to file Form 8806 also must file Form 1099-CAP for certain shareholders of record who receive cash or other property (including stock) in exchange for their stock in the reporting corporation due to the acquisition of control or the substantial change in capital structure.

About the Corporate Income Tax
The IRS and most states require corporations to file an income tax return, with the exact filing requirements depending on the type of company.
Sole proprietorships or disregarded entities like LLCs are filed on Schedule C (or the state equivalent) of the owner's personal income tax return, flow-through entities like S Corporations or Partnerships are generally required to file an informational return equivilent to the IRS Form 1120S or Form 1065, and full corporations must file the equivalent of federal Form 1120 (and, unlike flow-through corporations, are often subject to a corporate tax liability).
Additional forms are available for a wide variety of specific entities and transactions including fiduciaries, nonprofits, and companies involved in other specific types of business.
