Question: How does my business become an S Corporation?
A corporation, or other business entity that elected to be treated as a corporation (by filing a Form 8832, Entity Classification Election), must use Form 2553, Election by a Small Business Corporation, to make an S corporation election. A business entity treated as a corporation must meet certain tests in order to qualify to be an S corporation. To learn more, see the Instructions for Form 2553 and the Instructions for Form 1120S, U.S. Income Tax Return for an S Corporation.
