Fringe Benefits2% shareholders are treated like partners i.e. fringe benefits paid to 2% shareholders are included as taxable income on shareholder's W?2. The amount of fringe benefit so included on W?2 is not subject to social security taxes.
Reasonable CompensationSince S corporations do not have to pay social security tax on the income that flows?through to the shareholders, therefore, IRS frequently reviews the salary of the shareholders to ensure that they are paying themselves reasonable amount of salary. If a shareholder is not taking out reasonable amount of salary, then the IRS can re?characterize a portion of the distribution as salary resulting in severe payroll tax penalties and interests.
