Subchapter S Corporation

A Subchapter S Corporation is a special type of corporation offering avoidance of double taxation. If a business qualifies as a Subchapter S Corporation by the IRS (Internal Revenue service), the corporation is not taxed directly but taxed as in a partnership, the shareholders of the corporation are liable to pay tax on business profits on their individual tax returns.
