As owner of the business everytime I take money I charge it

This answer was rated:

As owner of the business everytime I take money I charge it to owners that doesn't show up in profit and loss? therefore the profit is my income on my 1040?they are virtually the same item?

Welcome to Just Answer,

Charging disbursements to owners draw doesn't impact the profit and loss. The profit and loss is what shows your income to the IRS and the owners draw is a balance sheet/equity account.

The 1040 and the profit and loss should be virtually the same and not impacted by owners draw.

Please let me know if you have any questions before you rate my answer. A positive rating is what I strive for. Regards Dave

So then is the profit rolled over to owners equity?


Yes the profit is rolled over into owners equity at the end of the fiscal year. Please let me know if you need anything else before you rate my answer. Dave
