# In California, does the \$800 annual tax payment, due in Q1, count toward the 1.5% tax liability for S-Corps? Or, is it in addition to the 1.5% tax rate?

As my California S-Corp grows more profitable, I want to understand how this 1.5% CA tax is assessed, and whether it's on top of the \$800 annual minimum.  Am I right in concluding that the \$800 minimum (when divided by 1.5%) covers the first \$53,333 in net income?

If so, then anything over \$53,333 gradually increases the liability above \$800 by 1.5%; correct?

Thanks!

Yes, you are correct, the \$800 is the minimum tax on income if the percentage times the net income (on Form 100S California S Corporation Franchise or Income Tax) is more than \$800, you pay the greater amount.

Todd where do I enter the \$800 that was paid in TT Business as an estimate to avoid a penalty?
