Why Should You Become an S Corporation?

S corporations offer various benefits to small business owners. One of the most significant advantages is their tax benefits. By electing to be an S corporation, the business becomes a pass-through entity, meaning that the profits and losses pass through to the shareholders’ personal tax returns. Consequently, S corporations do not pay corporate level income taxes, unlike C corporations. This means that the business’s income is taxed only once, at the individual shareholder level, instead of being taxed twice, at both the corporate and individual levels.
