Jaques v commissioner

  • Facts:

    • The taxpayer made withdrawals from his wholly ownedcorporation to pay day-to-day personal living expenses and these withdrawals were reflected as “Account Receivable – officer” made on the books of the corporation. The taxpayer did not execute notes for these withdrawals nor was there a maturity date set for repayment. There was no collateral pledged as security for the repayment.

    • The taxpayer considered the withdrawals as loan which is not taxable. The government treated the withdrawals as constructive dividend but not loans.

  • Issue:

    Are withdrawals from taxpayer’s wholly owned corporation to pay his personal expenses taxable constructive dividends, not non-taxable loans?

  • Holding:

    • Despite classification of withdrawals as loans by taxpayer and corporation and taxpayer’s small, sporadic repayments, taxpayer didn’t show intent to repay at time withdrawals were made.

    • There was neither written loan agreement nor collateral pledged.

    • There was no fixed schedule of repayment or attempt to enforce repayment.

    • The corporation had substantial current earnings but did not pay any dividends during this period.
