There are several issues where an S Corporation election does not make sense. Be wary of all the accountants and other business owners who automatically check the Yes box when asked about making the election. Attorneys screw this up was too often as well. As you can see in this chapter, it is not for everyone or every situation.

As always, the Watson CPA Group charges $150 for 40 minutes of consultation where we will ask questions to ensure the fit is correct and that it makes sense. If you decide to engage us for future services, we credit back the $150.

Three options exist from the consult-

  • A solid Yes, or

  • A solid No, or

  • Another appointment to dig deeper into the facts and your objectives to ensure the fit is right.

This is our core competency. We suggest taking advantage of it (Yes, more shameless self-promotion but in our heart of hearts we just want to help you avoid a mistake or a series of mistakes).
