This is an agreement among the shareholders of an S Corporation. S Corporations are particularly beneficial because they do not pay federal income tax. Rather, the corporation’s profits and losses are passed through to the shareholders that must report the income on their individual tax returns. For a business to be qualified for S Corporation status, they must have one class of stock and less than 100 shareholders. This agreement sets out the rights and responsibilities of each shareholder pertaining to the sale of shares, termination, and shareholder deaths. This agreement should be used by small businesses or other entities that qualify as S Corporations and want a sample shareholders agreement.
