What is an S-Corporation?

www.reichertlegal.comAn S-Corporation (S-Corp) is one of two types of corporations defined by subchapter of the tax code they are governed by.

Like more common C-Corporations (C-Corp), or publicly-traded corporations, S-Corps provide limited liability to management and shareholders, protecting the personal assets of those who would otherwise face personal liability in case of a creditor’s claim. They are also subject to similar government regulation, and are required to be registered with the state.

Unlike C-Corps, however, S-Corps are closely held businesses with fewer than 100 shareholders that are all individual American residents. In addition, S-Corps are taxed using “pass-through taxation” – by avoiding tax at the corporate level they do not pay double tax on income like a C-Corp.
