OK, lets take this one piece at a time
By the way GODD MORNING! (if you're on the east coast)
Because the C-Corp, as you know, is a completely separate entity (and doesn't get the benefir of capital gains taes as individuals do, the sale (the gain from the sale, FOR the C-Corp) is taxed as regualr C-Corp income ... at the corporate tax rates.
yes c copr cap will get paid..
The tax the first CPA is probably talking about the C-Corp's tax
Hang with me a mintue...
Because of the double taxation of C-Corps ... even though it's taxable at the C-Corp level, anything you take out of the C-Corp that's not compensation is a dividend (BOTH ae taxable to you, as an individual)
If you decide to put some of thos (Now, after tax dllars) into the S-Corp, as a capital contribution, that's your business
THat money you contributed to the S-Corp DOES become basis in the S-Corp
but the taxation comes from it either being comp or a dividend from the C-Corp to you
sorta..one more question
Is it the C-Corp that has a carryforward? or you?
if there was no basis before this year and had a carry fwd loss of 280k in s corp. i took money as commsission/income. how can one say its taxable and the other doesnt see as taxable
s corp carry fwd
c corp i paid cap gains on
he said the 280k *s corp losses wont be caried to personal cause i never had an income there. so the loss stays with s corp
again, just remember that the C-Corp is NOT you ... you have ownership (can pay you dividends AFTER the C-Corp has paid it's tax) and you may also be an employee (where you take salary or comissions from the C-Corp) but both those things are taxable to you as an individual .... Regarding the S-Corp, there's not real separation YOU ARE the S-Corp (S-Corps don't pay taxes)
That's right you can carry forward the S-Corp losses against future income, but that and whatever happens to the C-Corps taxes are two different issues
so the s corp doesnt have to pay taxes if there s a loss?
ive never had an income in there or a loan etc..
S-Corps don't pay taxes .. the income or loss is distributed to youi and a K-1 ... the SHAREHOLDERS pay or get the business loss on their PERSONAL tax return .... S-Corps, partnership[s and sole proprietorships are all passthroughs ... only C-Corps and IRrevocable trusts pay their own taxes (at corporation and trust rates, respectively)
OU do the 1120 S- (S-corp tax return) but that's just to arrive at what is sent to you onr your K-1 ... S-Corps are pass-throughs
i understand the pass thru..the 1120s on pg 4 say ive had carry fwd loss, but also say i received income of 200k so istill have 80k loos going fwd
therefore i didnt have to pay taxes on that $$..again cuz no income evr in s corrp , loan etcc..
That's right you have no basis in the S0Corp with which to take then loss
The passthrough loss in an S-Corp only memefits you to the extent of your BASIS IN that s-corp
basis in 2 yr old terms mean?
Your investment in the S-Corp (can be a capital contribution or a shareholder loan TO the S-Corp
