C Corporation Myths

This post is in: Business

C Corporations are one of the oldest business structures out there. And, while they come in and out of fashion, but they never go away. In today’s tax climate, the C Corporation is quickly gaining importance as a tax-savings tool. Will it work for your business?


  1. Annie Hall says:

    Can you explain what you think the difference is with a C corporation at 15% and a C Corp that is treated as a personal services corporation, and taxed at 34%?

    And how to avoid that pitfall if you are using a C Corp.


  2. The income left inside the C Corporation is taxed at the C Corp rate. That can be a good thing. For example, the first $50K is taxed at just 15%. If you’re currently paying at the new high personal tax rate of 39.6%, moving income from that rate to the C Corp means a savings of over $12,000.

  3. Brandi says:

    If you don’t distribute a dividend then if the profit is in the C corp account after expenses, does this just get taxed at normal C corp tax rate?
