Types of Small Business Tases

Small business taxes vary based on the structure of the business, but here are five primary small business taxes.


  • Income tax: Except for partnerships, all business file annual income tax returns.  Partnerships, however, file information returns.
  • Self-employment tax: This tax is on your net earnings from self-employment and goes toward you Social Security and Medicare obligations.
  • Employment taxes: If you have employees, you have taxes (and forms) related to their Social Security and Medicare taxes, federal income tax withholdings, and federal unemployment tax.  Payroll taxes fall into this category.  
  • Excise tax: There are several types of taxes that fall into the excise tax category.  This affects your business if you make or sell certain types of products: operate a certain business type; use specific equipment, facilities or products; or are paid for qualifying types of services.  If that sounds vague, it's because it cuts across many categories.  The classic example of products that carry an excise tax are fuel, tobacco and alcohol.
  • Estimated taxes: Many businesses (sole proprietors, partnerships and S corporation shareholders) must pay quarterly estimated tax payments.  This requirement applies if you don't have taxes withheld from each paycheck or don't have a sufficient amount withheld from each paycheck.
  • To file your tax return, you will need your tax ID number.  This is typically either the employer identification number issues when the articles of incorporation are approved for corporations and LLCs or a Social Security number, although in rare cases other numbers can be used.
