Corporate Tax in Florence, Alabama

Find the Right Lawyer Now

In Florence, Alabama, a "corporation" is specified as a legal entity that's separate from its owners. Thus, from a legal standpoint, the owner of a corporation and the corporation itself are not the same "person."

This doctrine is identified as "corporate personhood." While the concept is somewhat abstract, the law of Alabama treats corporations as individual persons, for most purposes. This means that, legally, corporations have most of the same rights, privileges, and commitments as living, breathing human beings.

One of these commitments is the duty to pay income tax in much the same way as an individual person.
