#1; At year end, you need to document the loan balance as in your case, and issue a 1099INT for the interest paid to s/h owners.. also this scenario is possible; an sa corp s/h or owner that takes draws all year, he pays the same 941 amount each month, the corp files 941`every quarter , then at the end of the year, the s/h took more draws then he should have. The corp take it against his loan and issue him 1099 int. Interest is not paid on capital contributions as they are just that, capital contributions. Repayments are a return of capital and reduce stock basis, while contributions increase stock basis. Loans are loans, increasing basis only to the extent that they are needed to take losses. At that point, repayments are capital gain items as a percentage of stock basis vs loan basis.
note;any interest paid by the corp would equal the interest you must report as income on your individual return, so in effect they would cancel each other out. However, under IRC Sec. 7872, the corporation is required to pay interest on the loan(s) s/h make to it.The interest rate charged must be at least as much as the applicable federal rate, which is determined monthly by the IRS and posted on theIRS Web site, Internal Revenue Service
. ou need to check it with the irs website
If there is no stated interest in the loan agreement, both the borrower and lender, on their tax returns, impute the interest and treat it as if it were paid. In other words, part of the loan payment will be treated as interest expense or interest income. The interest the corp pays is deducted on Form 1120-S as an ordinary and necessary business expense, thus reducing the corporation's taxable income
