Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Can you provide a bit more information?..
What exactly do you mean under "pass through income" ?
What type of company do you have? what is your ownership in this company?
Dividends are taxable for the recipient - that is correct.
If you own shares in the corporation - that is your taxable income.If you do not own shares - that is not your income.
Now you said "The owner gives the stockholders money" - YOU are a co-owner..So it is not clear whom exactly do you mean.
Shareholders ARE owners.
Second - "give money" - it is not clear what exactly do you mean - are these ADDITIONAL dividends?
How these "money to pay the taxes" are reported?
