Tax management for S-Corp


28 days ago

Only freelancers located in the U.S. may apply. U.S. located freelancers only
Hello. We are an S-Corp in California. This year we did about 1.5 million accrual profit but our taxes are on a cash method and we will likely have about $600k in profit.

I'd love to chat with a tax CPA or tax attorney about the following topics:

1. What is a reasonable salary that we must pay ourselves given the information above. Does our tax profit drive that or does accrual profit drive it?

2. What kind of benefit does the QBO offer. It seems like you still pay more taxes vs. just taking a distribution.

3. Isn't it doubly disadvantageous to pay yourself in an S-Corp because you have to cover the employee AND employer portion of FICO/SS taxes?

4. We are on cash accounting. If I take out cash from one business and invest it ("purchase") inventory in another business that is also in S-Corp on the tax cash method, will I be able to use those losses in the new entity to offset any gain in my current business?

5. Can you walk me through all the layers of tax estimated amounts (salary vs. distributions) in California? For example if we have X in salary and X in distributions.
