What is an S Corp?

An S corporation, also known as an S Subchapter, refers to any type of corporation that has 100 shareholders or less and is taxed like a partnership. An S corp business entity is allowed to pass income, losses, deductions, and credits directly to shareholders, helping them avoid double taxation. The shareholders then report their income and losses on each individual tax return.
