owners of a local con crete company will have to pay millions of dollars in back The IRS wants to terminate the S Corporation tajpfftatus of Ingram Inc of New Braunfels According to the IRS share holders in an S Corporation are not obligated to pay corporate income taxes to the federal gov ernment The owners have to pay taxes on their share of profits To qualify for a S Corporation status the corporation must have 75 or fewer owners The IRS sent the owners of Ingram Readymix a notice of defi ciencies Dec 12 which said it wanted to eliminate the compa nys tax status Ingrams attorney Peter Wolverton of San Antonio said the IRS gave no reason in the notice why it wanted to eliminate Ingrams S Corporation status we have is a tax contro Wolverton said The IRS is taking one position and Ingram Readymix is taking Five separate petitions have been filed with the Tax Court in Washington by majority owners Bruce and Gloria Ingram of San Marcos plus other owners and Sheila Ingram of Cor pus Christi Charles and Eliza beth Tuttle of San Marcos and Graham and Sue Leinneweber of San Marcos It petition says the govern ment is erroneous in its Wolverton said has taken the position that cer tain facts occurred for the termi nation of the Selection S Corpo The shareholders of Ingram Readymix disagree We feel we will prevail but we need the tax court to Wolverton said Ingram is trying to come to terms with the gov ernment What happens is when you file a petition you go to the adminis trative arm of the IRS and talk about the facts and see if you can settle the Wolverton said We feel comfortable with our position because the law supports If the IRS and the owners can not come to an agreement the case could go to trial in a tax court Wolverton said Ingram has not lost its tax No court ruling has been ordered to pay Wolver ton said If the tax court or the IRS rule Ingram has to pay the back taxes Wolverton said the worst case amount would be between and million Bruce Ingram would not com ment on the case and referred all questions to Wolverton He would not comment on whether paying back taxes would affect the com panys operations or on plans to build new concrete batch
