For tax years beginning on or after January 1, 2016, partnerships, LLCs treated as partnerships, and Single Member Limited Liability Companies (SMLLC) owned by pass-through entities (S corporations, partnerships, and LLCs treated as partnerships), the return due date is the 15th day of the third month after the close of the tax year.

Generally, California law follows federal law in computing the S corporation's income. However, the major difference is that for California purposes, an S corporation's income is taxable at the corporate level and the pass-through of its income to the shareholders is also taxable on their returns.

California law is also different in the following areas:

  • The S corporation is allowed tax credits and net operating losses.
  • The computation of tax on built-in gains and excess passive income.

The annual California tax for S corporations is the greater of 1.5% of the corporation's net income or $800.

Did you pay the initial filing fee up front?

Ask Your Own Tax Question
Customer reply replied 27 days ago
no to whom were they supposed to be paid
Tax Professional: Lane, JD, CFP, MBA, CRPS replied 27 days ago

Secretary of state ... If you did you're exempt for the first year.

...

See this example from CA FTB

...

Beta Corporation incorporates on February 21, 2000, and pays only the Secretary of State filing fee. Beta selects a calendar year end and when it files its first return for the short income year of February 21 to December 31, it shows that the corporation operated at a $3,000 loss. Because Beta is a new corporation, it is not subject to the minimum franchise tax for its first tax return.

what initial fee are talking about
Tax Professional: Lane, JD, CFP, MBA, CRPS replied 27 days ago

But if you are profitable in that first year it's a different story.

...

See this:

Johnson Corporation incorporates on January 11, 2000, and pays only the Secretary of State filing fee. Johnson selects a calendar year end and for the year ending December 31, 2000, it shows $20,000 of income. When the corporation files its return, it owes $300 of tax ($20,000 X 1.5%).

We expert users are users just as you (except with credentials verified). And I receive NONE of what you paid them until you rate me positively.

...

Would appreciate your asking questions until you've been satisfied, so that they will compensate me for my time and expertise

Tax Professional: Lane, JD, CFP, MBA, CRPS replied 27 days ago

When you incorporate with the secretary of state you pay a filing fee.

...

if that fee was paid (and you wouldn't HAVE a corporation electing S-Corp federal taxation unless you had) the first year minimum tax is waived when the 1.5% of business income would be less than that

...

Just don't know any other way to say this.
