Understanding the pros and cons of an “S Corporation”
Posted on Wednesday, October 12th, 2016 at 11:44 am
When setting up a new business, individuals should know the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) recognizes two kinds of business structures, which determine how the business will be taxed by the government. An “S Corporation” is one of the two types of business structures an entrepreneur may choose.
Business owners who decide to make their venture an “S Corporation” are not mandated by the IRS to settle corporate income taxes based on their profit. Usually, individuals who decide to run small businesses are the benefactors of S Corporations because they are taxed only once, but they also receive the legal advantages enjoyed by other types of businesses. Individuals should know they need to file Form 2553 with the IRS, requesting to become an S Corporation, and they will need to comply with the standards set to acquire the status.
