Incorporation is an important step in the life of a business, but unfortunately the true value of incorporating a business is often not seen until the business faces a negative situation such as a law suit or bankruptcy. A primary advantage of forming a corporation is the limited liability the corporate entity affords its shareholders (owners). Typically, shareholders are not liable for the debts and obligations of the corporation; thus, creditors will not come knocking at the door of a shareholder to pay debts of the corporation. In a partnership or sole proprietorship the owner's personal assets may be used to pay debts of the business. A close second to personal asset protection, a major benefit of incorporating your business is the stamp of approval adding an "Inc." after your business name gives. This distinction affords your business with the instant credibility and authority associated with owning an incorporated company. Potential consumers, vendors and partners may prefer to do business with an incorporated company and will look overlook those who are not.

S-corporations are corporations that elect to pass corporate income, losses, deductions and credit through to their shareholders for federal tax purposes. Shareholders of S-corporations report the flow-through of income and losses on their personal tax returns and are assessed tax at their individual income tax rates. This allows S-corporations to avoid double taxation on the corporate income. S-corporations are responsible for tax on certain built-in gains and passive income.

Corporation bylaws are written to manage the corporation's business and to guide the corporation's affairs. The corporation's bylaws should not be in conflict with the articles of incorporation. A corporation maintains its own bylaws and is not required to file them with the State in which it incorporates.
To make an S election, your corporation must be domestic. It may have only allowable shareholders including individuals, certain trust, and estates and may not include partnerships, corporations or non-resident alien shareholders. The corporation may have no more than 100 shareholders and only have one class of stock. They corporation many not be an ineligible corporation i.e. certain financial institutions, insurance companies, and domestic international sales corporations.
In a nutshell, an S Corporation is a corporation, partnership or limited liability company that's made an S election with the IRS. And an S Corporation doesn't have to actually be a corporation. It needs only to be what the Internal Revenue Service considers an eligible entity.
You should therefore think about an S corporation not as a "legal entity" but rather as a tax accounting classification.
Just to go into this definition a bit further, the S election tells the IRS that the business wants to be treated under the rules of Subchapter S of the Internal Revenue Code.
While there are many complicated provisions in Subchapter S, the basic feature of an S corporation is easy to understand: S corporation taxable income or S corporation tax deductible loss is allocated to the S corporation owners based on their ownership percentages.
An S corporation that makes, say, $100,000 in profits pays no income taxes on that profit. Instead, the shareholders of the S corporation include the profit on their returns.
If two shareholders equally own an S corporation that makes $100,000, for example, each shareholder adds $50,000 of income to his or her return and then pays the tax on that $50,000 profit from the S Corporation.
An S corporation does not pay federal taxes at the corporate level. Any business income or loss is "passed through" to shareholders who report it on their personal income tax returns. This means that business losses can offset other income on the shareholders tax returns. This can be extremely helpful in the startup phase of a new business.
S corporation shareholders can be employees of the business and draw salaries as employees. They can also receive dividends from the corporation, as well as other distributions that are tax-free to the extent of their investment in the corporation. A reasonable characterization of distributions as salary or dividends can help the shareholder reduce self-employment tax liability, while still generating business-expense and wages-paid deductions for the corporation.
