What is a Utah Corporation?

A Utah Corporation  is a business entity created under state law where if properly set up and maintained, owners are not personally liable for company debts. Like a sole proprietorship or a partnership, corporation has operating flexibility and can elect to be taxed as a “pass through” entity, or S-Corporation for tax purposes. This means that the corporation does not pay taxes on its profits, instead profits and losses are “passed through” to the owners. Owners or shareholders then pay tax on their share of allocated income.
