What is an S-Corporation?


S-Corporation Election Filing Service


Also known as an S-Corp, an S-Corporation is a business that has both incorporated and then additionally registered for S-Corporation status.

The typical for-profit Corporation (also known as a C-Corp) pays federal corporate income tax, and then its owners (shareholders) also pay federal income taxes on the income they receive from the Corporation. This is known as double taxation.

But S-Corporations avoid double taxation and instead receive pass-through taxation from the IRS. This means that S-Corporations pay no federal income taxes. Instead, all business income is recognized as the personal income of the owners.
