Q: If I am an officer or shareholder of the corporation, why do I have to pay unemployment premiums?
A: Officers and shareholders of a corporation who perform services for the corporation are considered employees of the corporation. The I.R.S. has established that a reasonable wage should be reported. Therefore, in lieu of any wages being reported, all draws, dividends, distributions and constructive receipt of remuneration can be reclassified to wages.
