When this matter was finally brought before the tax court, the two remaining shareholders asserted that the transaction was essentially a liquidation of interest (withdrawal) in accordance with Section 736 of the IRC, while the outgoing partner asserted that the transaction was, as agreed, a sale under Section 741 of the IRC. There are cases where the IRS can look behind the form chosen by the parties and redefine the transaction. Such a case is one where the refund appears to be funded by the contribution of a remaining member to the LLC. Another is that the interests of the remaining members do not increase pro-rata after the transaction. In these circumstances, a rebutted presumption of a disguised sale may appear under Section 707 of the IRC. In order to avoid unintended consequences, counsel should carefully consider all relevant facts and circumstances, including the CLL`s cash situation, when structuring the transaction. (3) Unless the liability contract is otherwise limited by a concrete reference to that subsection or by any other means related to the assignment, upon the voluntary transfer of all the shares of the limited liability company into the limited liability company to a single assignee, unless otherwise provided in the context of the limited liability company. For the purposes of this subsection, the assignment is optional if it was authorized by the member at the time of the transfer and is not subject to a forced execution or similar legal proceedings. Carefully crafted withdrawal agreements can protect the remaining members from the burden of their untested or unknown successors and minimize the risk of litigation and stress among co-owners caused by the uncertainty of an outgoing owner.

However, the feasibility of these types of agreements should be subject to regular review. For example, feasibility is important to ensure that the company has sufficient resources to cash in the shares – and also for practice, to confirm that the terms and conditions are always in line with the needs and objectives of the owner and the company. In accordance with the relevant legal provisions of Sub-Chapter K of the Internal Revenue Code (“IRC”), LLC members have some flexibility in allocating their tax burden by structuring the transaction as a sale or withdrawal. The tax differences between the sale and withdrawal can be significant, as the outgoing member`s profit and the tax base of the remaining members are treated differently.
