I realize you have a question about social security. My goal is to provide you with excellent service, and help you better understand your options.
How are you today?
As an S Corp owner, you are required to take a "reasonable salary" for your work with the company. So, the answer to your question is, Yes you are required to process your own payroll.
If your company is operating at a loss, you still have to pay yourself a reasonable salary...but that salary is deducted from the business losses so in effect you are only paying your payroll taxes.
Is there anything else I can assist you with today? If not, please rate as "excellent" so that I may receive credit for assisting you today.
