S corporation

An S corporation is a corporation that 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 that the corporation can issue.
