I have a tax question concerning a client who has the following situation:

C-CORP since 2002. He regularly "flips" houses.
Last year he flipped 3 houses within the year. This is the only income generated by his C-Corp.
Question: Does he report Income on 4797; Sch. D; or "Gross Sales" on Form 1120?
Dilema, if he reports all on 4797 or Sch. D, he will show no "Gross Sales" on 1120, will this raise a red flag with IRS?
Please advise

regular income, they are in the business of flipping houses. COGS is whatever they have in each house sold, ending inventory is whatever they have spent on houses not sold by end of year.

Agree with Kevin.

I agree. By the way, flipping real estate and incorrectly reporting income as capital gain is a hot topic with the IRS at this time.

And the notion of flipping houses gives me the most interesting mental images ....
