An S-Corporation is a tax election made with the IRS by Corporations to avoid the potential double taxation of a General for Profit Corporation. Once approved by the IRS, all the profits of the company will pass thru the business to the shareholders (owners) to report with their individual income tax return. The corporation itself does not pay income tax like it does in a General for Profit Corporation.

Because this election allows the company to avoid potential double taxation, the election is very common among small business owners. ORDER NOW!
