Understanding S-Corps

As a small business owner, I’m sure you’ve asked yourself the question: ‘Should I file as an LLC or an S-Corp?’ The truth is, this is actually the wrong question to ask! Unlike an LLC, which is a business structure, and S-Corp only has to do with your tax filing status. Tune in to gain a deeper understanding of what exactly an S-Corp is, and how it can help you with tax liability. 

In this episode, we’ll cover:

  • What an S-Corp truly is

  • The pros and cons of filing an S-Corp election

  • How to know when it’s time to file your business as an S-Corp
