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!

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
