Advantages of An S-Corporation

While general corporations, or C-Corps, are the most frequently filed, s-corporations remain a popular choice. These corporations are created with the help of IRS tax elections. In most cases, a corporate entity experiences a double tax burden – once as a business and then once for the shareholders. An s-corporation avoids this particular drawback of general corporations.

In order to pursue the necessary tax elections a business must first be incorporated. This takes place in the state where the company headquarters can be found. Because state tax laws can affect the tax burden of a company some business owners go through a lot of effort to find a location that provides the perfect balance of favorable tax codes and access to necessary resources and employees.

Like a general corporation an s-corporation is regarded as a distinct legal entity without personal connections to any shareholders. This prevents the shareholders from experiencing personal asset loss as a result of financial liability associated with the company.
