In general, an S corporation does not pay tax on its income. Instead, the income, losses, deductions, and credits of the corporation are "passed through" to the shareholders.
S corporation return.
An S corporation must file a return on Form 1120S, U.S. Income Tax Return for an S Corporation, and send Schedule K-1 (Form 1120S) to each shareholder. In addition, the S corporation will send each shareholder a copy of the Shareholders Instructions for Schedule K-1 (Form 1120S) to help each shareholder report his or her share of the S corporations income, credits, and deductions.
For more information on S corporations and their shareholders, see the instructions for Form 1120S.
