How are sole proprietorships taxed?

Unlike a corporation, a sole proprietorship is not considered separate from its owner for tax purposes. This means the sole proprietorship itself does not pay income tax; instead, the owner reports business income or losses on his or her individual income tax return. Note that all business income is taxed to the owner in the year the business receives it, whether or not the owner removes the money from the business.
