False;614. #16;The ?Type A? corporate reorganization can run afoul of the continuity of;interest doctrine more easily than a ?Type C,? because with a ?Type A? the Code;does not require that the target shareholders receive common stock of the;acquiring corporation in exchange for their ownership of the target.;a.;True;b.

False;622. #24;The distinguishing characteristic of a ?Type D? reorganization is the acquiring;corporation is the one transferring assets to the target corporation in;exchange for a controlling interest in the target.;a.;True;b. False;623. #25;For a capital restructuring to qualify as a ?Type E,? there must be at least a;50% change in the common stock ownership.;a.;True;b. False;624. #26;An exchange of common stock for preferred stock or bonds for preferred stock;can qualify as a ?Type E? reorganization.;a.;True;b.

False;631. #33;Without evidence to the contrary, the IRS views transactions occurring within;one year of a reorganization as part of the restructuring.;a.;True;b. False;632. #34;A more than 50 percentage point ownership shift will evoke the ? 382;limitation.;a.;True;b. False;633. #35;Liabilities generally are not considered boot in corporate reorganizations;except in an acquisitive ?Type D? when cash or other property is also used in;the transaction.;a.;True;b. False;634. #36;A present value analysis is beneficial when valuing tax attributes limited by;the ? 382 limitation.;a.;True;b. False;635. #37;One advantage of acquiring a corporation with losses is that after a tax-free;reorganization, the remaining corporation may combine the negative earnings and;profits (E & P) of the target corporation with positive E & P of the;acquiring corporation.;a.;True;b. False;636. #38;The ? 382 limitation on the use of capital loss carryovers is triggered when;there is a change in ownership of more than 50 percentage points for;shareholders owning at least 5% of the stock.;a.;True;b. False;637. #39;The year in which the ownership shift occurs for a corporation, the NOL;carryforward is limited not only by the ? 382 annual limitation, but also by;the percentage of the year remaining.;a.;True;b.
