S CORPORATION (LLC)

An S corporation elects to be taxed as a "pass-through" entity, so profits and losses are passed through directly to the shareholders. This eliminates the double taxation problem associated with C corporations. S corporations are subject to limitations not applicable to regular corporations, including a limit on the number of shareholders and the classes of stock.
