We have a S-Corporation with two owner/shareholders. The split is not equal, being 66 shares for one and 34 shares for the other owner. We want to have both take a "Reasonable" salary of $40k per year each. This seems to throw the distribution of profits off though if we then split the remaining income as distributions split 66 to 34 percent. The 34 share owner ends up with more since they already took an employee salary equal to the 66 share owner's salary. Also payroll taxes are paid on each of course.

How do we still make this fair in light of the equal salaries prior to profit distribution?

We use QuickBooks Online, wondering how things should be setup there to handle this properly.

So A and B both have salaries of $40k. Let's say profits are $10k. $6,600 is attributed to A and $3,400 is attributed to B. What are you wanting to change here?
