Who does corporate tax apply to?

Corporate tax, also known as corporate income tax, applies to corporations. A corporation is a business entity that is separate from its owners and is typically formed to carry on a business or other activity.

In most countries, corporations are taxed on their income and profits. The rules for determining which businesses are considered corporations and which are taxed as other types of business entities, such as partnerships or sole proprietorships, vary depending on the jurisdiction.

In the United States, for example, corporations are generally taxable as C corporations or S corporations. C corporations are taxed as separate entities from their owners, and the profits of the corporation are taxed at the corporate level. S corporations are taxed similarly to partnerships, with the profits and losses of the corporation passed through to the owners and taxed at the individual level.

Other types of business entities, such as partnerships, limited liability companies (LLCs), and sole proprietorships, may be subject to different rules for taxation. These entities may be taxed as pass-through entities, meaning that the profits and losses of the business are passed through to the owners and taxed at the individual level.

It’s worth noting that in some cases, businesses that are not incorporated may be treated as corporations for tax purposes, depending on the jurisdiction and the nature of the business. Corporations should consult with their tax advisors and local tax authorities for more information about the rules for corporate taxation in their jurisdiction.
