mentioned earlier assuming tax rate to be 20%Firstit is taxed in the hands of C CoporationProfitreported 30,000Less : Taxe @ 20 % (Assumed)(6,000)Profit after taxes 24,000Assumingentire amounts is paid to shareholdersHence eachShareholder gets equal shareI.e. Mira = \$ 24000 *50%\$12,000I.e. Lemma = \$ 24000 *50% \$12,000Oneof the disadvantage of C Corporation is it is double taxationentityi.e. Profits are first taxed at entity level then aftertransferring share to shareholdersthey are again taxablein the hands of share holders.In case it is SCorporationIn Case of an S corporation, the profits arepassed on to the shareholders, and are taxed based onpersonal returns.So entire amount of Profit i.e \$30000 willbe distributed to sharedholeder i.e Mira and lemma in theratio of there holdingsi.e. 50 % eachAssuming entireamounts is paid to shareholdersHenceI.e. Mira = \$30000 *50% \$15,000I.e. Lemma = \$ 30000 *50% \$15,000
