All U.S. businesses need to meet federal, state, and local tax obligations to stay in good legal standing. A business must file an annual federal income tax return. The form you use depends on how your business is organized. Generally, you must pay taxes on income, by making regular payments of estimated tax during the year.
If you have employees or contractors in the U.S., you also may be required to file 1099 or W-2 forms.
If a business has a foreign (non-US) bank account, the account, and its highest value, must be reported annually through a process called Foreign Bank Account Reporting (FBAR).
