Hi,

...

can you add a litle more detail please?

...

What form are you being asked to file?

Ask Your Own Tax Question
Tax Professional: Lane, JD, CFP, MBA, CRPS replied 2 years ago

The way filing for an S-Corp normally works is that (since the S-Corp is a passthrough and doesn't pay income tax), the 1120-S (S-Corp return) generates a K-1 for the owner to use with his own taxes.

...

Are you saying that you are not a tax resident in the U.S?

Tax Professional: Lane, JD, CFP, MBA, CRPS replied 2 years ago

IF THAT's the case then we may have other issues...

...

The tax code provides that a S-Corporation must not have a nonresident alien as a shareholder (see, IRC Section 1361(b)(1)(C)). Treasury Regulation Section 1.1361-1 states that “a corporation having a shareholder who is a ‘nonresident alien’ as defined in Section 7701(b)(1)(B) does not qualify as a small business corporation.”

...

Section 7701(b)(1)(B) provides — in typical IRC legalese — that a person is a nonresident alien if he isn’t a resident alien. Having a particular visa has no impact on whether a non-resident alien can be a S-corporation shareholder. Only a green card or meeting the IRS’ “substantial presence test” enables an alien to be eligible to be an S Corporation shareholder.
