Patient discussion about AAA

Q. Is there a good screening test for aortic abdominal aneurysm? A friend of mine was diagnosed with an aortic abdominal aneurysm. I am afraid i might have this condition too. is there any screening test that is good for me?

A. Today there are "mobile" testing centers that charge to use ultrasound technology to detect such things as AAA. I would highly recommend it only because it can act as a preventative measure. I am 50 years old and just suffered a ruptured AAA that very nearly killed me. I was the fortunate one. This very possibly could have detected it before it actually ruptured. You may want to check in your local areas for these mobile testing centers.

The corporation's AAA must be allocated proportionately to all distributions made during the year.
The allocations of AAA and AE&P are different if the redemption qualifies as a sale or exchange.
Accordingly, the AAA is first adjusted for income, second for losses, deductions and other expenses, third for nonredemption ("ordinary") distributions and finally, for redemptions.
XYZ's AAA at the end of 1996 (before reduction for distributions) was $120,000 ($50,769 beginning balance + $69,231 of 1997 income).
302 or 303, the AAA and AE&P would be allocated as though all the distributions were ordinary.
Beginning AAA balance $ 50,769 1997 income 69,231 Less: ordinary distributions (100,000) Balance before redemption $ 20,000 Reduction for redemption (25%, corresponding to percentage of outstanding shares redeemed) (5,000) AAA balance at end of 1997 $ 15,000
Effects when AAA is negative: When a corporation has sustained losses in excess of its income, the AAA may have a negative balance.
If the corporation elects to close its year as of the date of the redemption, the redemption will be the final event in the corporation's short period; the corporation will need to adjust its AAA separately for each such period.
13682(d) (2), regardless of whether the S corporation is the target or the survivor of a reorganization, the survivor's postacquisition AAA is the sum of the AAAs of all predecessors.
