Equity Crowdfunding for S Corporations?

A corporation can have S status, so that profits are passed through and taxed to owners, if there are no more than 100 shareholders. This shareholder limit essentially bars S corporations from raising capital through equity crowdfunding. A new bill (H.R. 4831) would create an exception to this limit for shareholders who obtain their shares through crowdfunding or small public offerings. Chances of enactment? Who knows.
