Blank 851 is for filing a consolidated tax return by a parent corporation and some of its subsidiaries. However, a company should remember that in the first year it was established the parents and affiliated companies should first submit Form 1122.

A return like this has a number of advantages, including centralized planning, reporting, and payment processing. If the corporation votes in favor of a consolidated benefit, it should do it every year or until the corp asks the IRS for a change.

Before completing the 3-page template, prepare the information in advance. The template consists of four sections:

  1. Overpayment credits and deposits
  2. Key business activity
  3. Changes in stock holdings
  4. Stock information
