What form do I use for a dissolution of an asset on 1120S?

Level 2

I'm closing an S Corp in dissolution on a short year for 2020. There is only a single asset that which was a franchise fee that has been amortized over 10 years. It never used section 199A so there is no recapture necessary. The single shareholder is dissolving the business, not selling it so would I use form 4562 and show zero income received?

4797 with sale price -0-.

File Form 966.

That fee should probably have been amortized over 15 years.

Thank you. The fee was amortized over 15 years. This year is 10 of the 15 years.

The 966 has been mailed. Do I still file it with the return?

I'm not sure. I don't do them often. What do the instructions say?

Due to the backlog of IRS, I will be e-filing Form 966 along with the tax return to be on the safe side.  However, I will add a note saying a paper form 966 was mailed MM/DD/YY.
