Will both the IRS and my state grant my business pass-through taxation if I register it as an S-Corporation?


S-Corporation Election Filing Service


Securing pass-through taxation from the IRS requires only one simple S-Corporation election filing you can conduct right here.

How to get pass-through taxation at the state level depends on the laws of your state. Some states grant your business pass-through taxation if you simply register the federal S-Corporation election. Some states require an additional filing directly with them to classify your business as an S-Corporation. Other states do not recognize S-Corporation status at all. You are responsible for researching and fulfilling your own state's requirements if you desire pass-through taxation at the state level.
