W2 Wages For S Corporation Officers

See: Wage Compensation for S Corporation Officers<

When corporate officers perform services for the corporation, and receive or are entitled to receive payments, their compensation is generally considered wages.  Subchapter S corporations should treat payments for services to officers as wages and not as distributions of cash and property or loans to shareholders… 

"Distributions and other payments by an S corporation to a corporate officer must be treated as wages to the extent the amounts are reasonable compensation for services rendered to the corporation."

As your accounting and tax consultants, we advise our S Corporations to pay a Reasonable Salary to its officers who work for the company.
