C Corporations

For Federal and California tax purposes, a C Corporation is a separate tax entity and files it’s own tax return to report its income and losses. Shareholders in a C Corporation don’t report any of the income of the corporation on their personal tax return. C Corporations also pays federal and state taxes on its income at the federal and state tax rates specially for C Corporations.
