Constructive ownership of stock
In determining the percentage of stock ownership of a stockholder in a corporation, in order to find whether the stockholder controls the corporation or to make other tests of ownership,the Code in several instances provides that the stockholder will be constructively regarded as the owner of shares of stock held by certain other persons. For example, the rule is applied in disallowing a loss on sales between certain related persons.
