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 based on each shareholder's pro rata share. taxmap/pub17/p17-067.htm#en_us_publink1000171989
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 Shareholder's Instructions for Schedule K-1 (Form 1120S) to help each shareholder report his or her share of the S corporation's income, losses, credits, and deductions.
Keep Schedule K-1 (Form 1120S) for your records. Do not attach it to your Form 1040.
For more information on S corporations and their shareholders, see Instructions for Form 1120S.
