Tax Treatment of IPO Transaction Costs

Webcast overview:

2018 was a growth year for the IPO market with 190 companies going public, 30 more than in 2017, with proceeds increasing 32 percent to $47 billion.[1] Volatility in the fourth quarter pushed many offerings to 2019, putting this year on track to be a record-breaking year. Companies incur substantial costs going public, and without the necessary analysis, such costs may not provide any tax benefit now or in the future.

Please join professionals from KPMG’s M&A Tax and Washington National Tax practices as they discuss the tax treatment of transaction costs incurred in connection with an IPO.  The webcast discussion will include:

  • General federal tax treatment of IPO costs
  • Recoverability of underwriters’ fees and best practices for collecting supporting documentation
  • Recent guidance from the IRS regarding transaction costs

After registering, you will receive details on how to log into the Webcast or dial in for audio only. Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credit is available for U.S. participants who meet the eligibility requirements.
