Tax Professional: Robin D., Senior Tax Advisor 4 replied 7 months ago

Pass-through entities are businesses that don't pay the corporate income tax or any entity-level tax. But, rather, the profits are passed through to the owners of the business. And then the owners report that income on their individual tax returns and pay tax on it, along with the rest of their normal income.

You would want to be a pass through and not a C corp.

Please let me know if you need more information.
If not then please scroll up to see the STARS to rate so I am credited.
