TRUSTS COMMONLY USED TO HOLD S CORPORATION STOCK [ILLUSTRATION OMITTED] Three commonly used types of ongoing trusts qualify as S corporation shareholders: grantor trusts, qualified subchapter S trusts (QSSTs) and electing small business trusts (ESBTs).
In particular, the proposed regulations provide guidance on S corporation family shareholder rules, the definitions of "powers of appointment" and "potential current beneficiaries" (PCBs) with regard to electing small business trusts (ESBTs), and the allowance of suspended losses to the spouse (or former spouse) of an S corporation shareholder.
