The corporation is subject to considerable more regulation than other forms of business organization. Corporations are also subject to greater taxes. Earnings are taxed before they are distributed to shareholders, and again when shareholders report them on their individual tax returns. The IRS does under certain conditions allow a corporation to be taxed in a manner similar to a partnership, provided it has a small number of shareholders. All corporations are subject to federal income taxes. The payment of state income taxes depends upon where the corporation was incorporated and in which states it conducts business.
