USA S Corporation Subsidiary

Reaction score
I have a client who is expanding operations via acquisition. They are going to put the new company into an S Corp Subsidiary (incorporate the asset purchase).

I see the requirement to file the S Sub election - form 8869 - but I'm wondering if we need to make the S Election for the new corp as well.

Logically, the subsidiary doesn't qualify to be an S Corp, so I don't see how it could make the election.
