What is an S Corporation?

An S corporation is a corporation that has elected to be taxed as a flow though entity (similar to an LLC or LP). The “S” also refers to an IRS code section. Providing for this type of taxation, the S election allows the shareholders to be taxed only at the individual level instead of at both the corporate and individual level, thus avoiding the double taxation of a C corporation. The S corporation still provides limited liability protection and is a good entity for many business situations.
