A corporation is an organization that is approved by the state to conduct business. It is a legal entity separate and distinct from its owners. The creation of this entity requires the preparation and filing of certain documents with New York Secretary of State which is what We The People will prepare and file for you.
All New York corporations formed start out as what is called “C” corporations. However, most small businesses choose to file forms with the state and federal government to elect to be considered as a “Subchapter S” corporation. Filing the paperwork to become an “S” Corp allows profits and losses to flow through the entity directly to the owners. As a result, the owners/shareholders avoid double taxation and are not taxed twice.
