Liquidating dividends and tax treatment
When a corporation decides to shut down, it liquidates its assets.
This means that the business sells off not just any inventory it may have, but its tools of production, building and any other assets it may have.
The basis in the stock is how much the taxpayer paid to obtain the stock.
You also may receive dividends through a partnership, an estate, a trust, or an association that is taxed as a corporation.
