C corporations are formed when corporations are created. If those forming the corporation do not elect to be treated as an S corporation, their corporation will continue to be a C corporation. Like other business entities, C corporations are taxable entities and file tax returns (Form 1120). They pay tax on net profits each year. Any profits remaining after taxes can be distributed to the shareholders as dividends.
