It is often said that corporations are like lobster traps, easy to get into and hard to get out of. The tax consequences of liquidating a corporation vary, depending on the facts involved and the form the liquidation takes. Liquidations to non-corporate shareholders generally require paying a corporate level tax, while subsidiary liquidations do not.
