General Information
S-Corporation Status - Kit

This kit provides tools and guidelines for qualifying your corporation for S-corporation status.

An S-corporation is a type of corporation that is recognized by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service and is treated differently than other corporations in terms of federal taxation.  Some states recognize S-corporation status for state income taxation purposes; some states do not (please see your Secretary of States website to determine how S-Corporations are treated for tax purposes in your state.)  The only reason for becoming an S-corporation is to obtain a different method of taxation than other corporations.

Notes and Requirements for S-Corporation Status


Taxation

For standard corporations, the corporation pays a federal and, perhaps, state corporate tax on the business profits.  If the after-tax profit is then distributed to the shareholders as dividends, the shareholders then pay an additional personal income tax on the dividends.  The amount distributed to the shareholders as dividends is not a deduction for the corporation.  S-corporations, on the other hand, are taxed similarly to partnerships. They act merely as a conduit for passing the income and deductions of the corporation directly through to the individual shareholders in much the same manner as partnerships, or even sole proprietorships.  The S-corporation does not pay a corporate tax and files a different type of tax form than does a standard corporation.  Taxation of the profits of the S-corporation falls to the individuals who own shares in the corporation.  This also allows for each individual shareholder to personally deduct their share of any corporate losses.

Requirements

There are certain basic requirements for qualifying a corporation for S-corporation status. Every requirement must be met before the IRS will recognize S-corporation status and allow for the different tax treatment:

1.   The corporation must have no more than 75 shareholders.  (Wives and husbands, even if they own stock separately, are considered as only one shareholder.)

2.   Each of the corporations shareholders must be a natural person (a human being) or the estate of a natural person.  Corporations and partnerships may not hold shares in the corporation.  Each shareholder must also be a citizen or resident of the United States.

3.   The corporation must only have one class of stock that is issued and outstanding.  The corporation may have other classes of stock that are authorized, providing no shares are issued.  Different voting rights within a class of stock (i.e., voting and non-voting) do not disqualify the corporation.

4.   The corporation must already be incorporated in the United States or in one of its possessions.  Financial institutions, foreign corporations, and certain other very specialized corporations are not eligible.

5.   The corporation must not have been qualified as an S-corporation within the previous five years.  This restriction prevents abrupt shifting from one type of corporation to another in order to obtain the maximum tax benefits.

6.   The corporation must file IRS Form 2553: Election by a Small Business Corporation with the IRS.

If your corporation meets all of these requirements, S-corporation status may be elected.  It may be prudent to obtain the advice of a competent accountant prior to making the election, however.  The actual steps in electing S-corporation status are detailed in the S-corporation Checklist below.  Following the checklist are the forms required to complete the election of S-corporation status.  Please note that the IRS Form 2553: Election by a Small Business Corporation is not included in this kit.  This form and all other IRS forms can easily be downloaded from the IRS website:
