Working in an S-corp

S-corp is a type of corporation, especially for tax purposes, who are elected to ensure that their deductions, credits, loss, and income are pass-through owners, referred to as shareholders, of the company.

They are responsible for submitting and completing Form 1120S to IRS. They also have to provide Schedule K-1 to every shareholder, so that they can report their net earnings share on their personal tax returns.

S-corp shareholders do not have to pay the self-employment tax on their net-earnings share from the corporation. If the shareholder is receiving the salary FICA which is Social Security and Medicare tax, will get deducted from the paychecks they are receiving.
