Not Really a Loophole

First off it is not really a loophole and it has to do with how the owners of an S corporation take money out of their business.

Shareholders of an S corporation are considered employees of their S corporation. That being said, the owners are taxed the same way any employee of any other business is.

How Does This Work?

When someone sets up an S corp they pay most of their earning to the corporation. Then they pay a bit of the income to themselves. The income paid to the S corp owner is subject to payroll taxes, but the income paid to the corporation is not. The one stipulation is that the earnings paid to the owner must be a reasonable income.

The Future of the “Loophole”

Some governing bodies are hoping to close it, so S corporation shareholders beware!
