Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
Have you filed an election with IRS to be taxed as scorp? Taking wages doesn't automatically makes you corporation or Scorp.
It is too late to file an extension and it is too late for filing the election. You can still file 1065 and report the W2 as income as well as the K1 income. Also file the election with your return for the current year.
As long as you did the payroll return correctly the IRS may question it but it will not give you hard time about especially if you plan to switch to scorp. You would have a bigger problem if you were scorp and didn't pay yourself. It doesn't make much difference if the income is reported as salary (W2) or distribution from partnership (K1) subject to self-employment tax. Bot***** *****ne, taxes had been paid.
Filing late election could also be an option but then you would have to deal with the penalty. It would make more sense just file 1065 penalty free and make the election for the next year as trying to fix the late filing and deal with IRS bureaucracy.
