ATTENTION S CORPORATIONS:
The IRS has mandated that you draw a reasonable salary from your business. Please find
below some sample calculations. A good rule of thumb is to draw between 30% - 40% of
your 1099 income as a wage. Note that the figures below are samples. They will change
for each state and for the number of exemptions an individual claims. Our firm can
prepare your payroll and take care of your payroll reports. Our fees are listed on the main
fee page. Your other alternative is to purchase a program such as Checkmark Payroll and
calculate your own payroll. Please make sure that you file your quarterly payroll reports
and PAY the amounts owed to the IRS.
