CPAR - 2021/December, Seg. 3 - Qualified Small Business Stock Gain Exclusion

The Section 1202, qualified small business stock (QSBS) gain exclusion has gone unnoticed for years since its enactment in 1993 but has gained popularity recently as a go-to tax planning strategy with significant benefits to shareholders who are selling. It is a tax incentive for sellers of qualifying C corporations and encourages investment opportunities in small businesses. Dan Mayo, principal at WithumSmith+Brown, discusses Section 1202 in further detail and explains what makes it a hot topic today.
