What is the personal holding company tax?
Personal holding companies that are required to pay personal holding tax will be subject to an additional 20% tax on personal holding income. Personal holding corporations will be subject to a penalty tax if they meet certain criteria:
Criteria #1: Over 50% of the value of the outstanding stock should be owned by five or fewer individuals during any period within the second half of the taxable year.
Criteria #2: 60% or more of the gross income should consist of income from passive investments (e.g., interest, dividends, rents, royalties).
