Business Tax Basics

All U.S. businesses must pay federal taxes on their income, just like individuals. However, companies must also pay many other federal, state, and local taxes that often make business taxes more complex than personal taxes. This section contains information on the taxes that must be paid by businesses and their owners, as well as the possible penalties they may face for failure to pay.
