Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** it will be my pleasure to assist you with your tax question today.
As you probably know, income earned by S corporations is untaxed at the corporate level, but often passes through to the shareholder or shareholders, where it is subject to taxes. The IRS does not allow S corporations to retain pretax income -- such as for investment -- but it does allow you to make legitimate purchases that become corporate expenses, reducing taxable income at the personal level. You can also reclassify income in ways that reduce the substantial taxes for Medicare and Social Security, or FICA, and for unemployment, or FUTA.
