Taxes are paid on income that we receive.
When you PAY - that is not your income - that is your expense - and there is no tax liability for expenses.However as that are expenses you personally pay for C-corporation - that amount is classified as your contribution to C-corporation and it is added to the basis you have in C-corporation shares.
Whether C-corporation may DEDUCT these expenses is a different issue - if these are qualified business expenses - they are deducted on form 1120.
But because these are expenses of C-corporation - you may not claim as your personal loss as long as you own shares of that corporation.
As you are an employee of C-corporation - C-corporation may reimburse you for these expenses - so you will receive the money tax free under an accountable reimbursement plan. And because they woudl be tax free for you - you woudl not need to deduct reimbursements.
But again - C-corporation is completely separate entity - and will need to deduct its own expenses.
