**Answer:**

**a.**

**Compute the amount of distribution to be treated as a
dividend to Mr. BM.**

**Step 1: Calculate deficit in current E&P (Earnings
& Profits):**

**Step 2:** **Calculate the distribution out
of $400,000 to be treated as dividend.**

**Therefore,** **out of distribution $400,000 to be
treated as dividend.**

**b)**

**Calculate tax basis of Mr. BM in his stock after the
distribution:**

Here, the tax basis of Mr. BM is $75,000. Accumulated E&P is $350,000. This portion of distribution amount that is not a dividend, reduces the tax basis of BM in SN’s stock and is treated as nontaxable return of capital.

The tax basis of Mr. BM on his stock ($75,000) is lesser than
the distribution and in excess of accumulated E&P that is,
$275,000 . Hence, BM’s tax basis is
**$0**. The remaining balance of accumulated E&P
$275,000 is considered as capital gain.

c)

**Calculate SN’s balance in accumulated E&P as on
January 1, 2010.**

**Therefore, the balance in accumulated E&P
is** **.**
