Corporate & Partnership Taxation

There are three main types of business entities that require federal tax filings. Partnerships, C-Corps, and S-Corps. Without the proper knowledge, all three can be difficult to understand. Our corporate tax accounting services can help. Below is a discussion of each, as well as a brief comment on LLCs:

Partnerships

If you have more than one member in your business but have not otherwise incorporated as an S-Corp or C-Corp, you should likely be filing partnership return. It is reported on Federal Form 1065 and (if applicable) certain state schedules. We support all 50 states. This default classification arises if you apply for an EIN number for a business entity that has more than one owner. This default classification also arises if you have registered an LLC with your state and that LLC has more than one owner, equity partner, or member.

S-Corp

An S-Corp is a small business corporation structure allowed by the IRS. It is reported on Federal Form 1120-S and (if applicable) certain state schedules. We support all 50 states. This is not a default classification – rather, you must apply for it and be approved by the IRS. The appeal of this classification is that it allows for decreased self-employment taxes on your individual return. These tax savings may be substantial, depending on the annual net income of your business. Please contact us for more details or to file your annual return.

C-Corp

A C-Corp is a taxable entity that pays taxes in its own right. It is reported on Federal Form 1120 and (if applicable) certain state schedules. We support all 50 states. This structure is the default classification you must file with the IRS after you file as a corporation with your state or after registering your EIN as a corporation with the IRS. The C-Corp structure allows many shareholders and is the common classification for many Delaware startups and larger businesses.

A Comment on LLCs

An LLC often has state filing requirements. However, for federal purposes, you would be filing your LLC taxes on one of two forms: from 1040 Schedule C or Form 1065. If you are the only owner, partner, or member of your LLC, then you would report on Federal Form 1040 Schedule C. If you have more than one owner, partner, or member of the business, then you would report on Form 1065, unless you have specifically incorporated as an S-Corp or other type of entity.
