Income Tax Treatment of Any Distribution That May be Received in Liquidation
  It is anticipated that any liquidating distribution will not be paid out of E&P (earnings and profits). Therefore, it will be considered a return of capital distribution.
  A return of capital distribution is treated as a reduction of your basis. It would, therefore, be non-taxable to the extent of your basis. Any portion of the distribution in excess of your basis would be taxed as a capital gain, either long or short depending on your holding period.
