I'm a sole proprietor and I partnered with an actual S Corp company on a project. I paid them their share.

When I file my taxes in April and need to deduct the amount I paid the S corp (so I don't get taxed on it), do I need to show proof of the amount I paid them (check images)? Or does the IRS take your word for it and in case of audit, then you show proof?

How does it work?

Thanks

You do not need to provide proof of payment when filing your tax return.

If you received full payment for the project then paid the S Corp, it will be reflected in your accounting records as income for the payment received and expense for the amount paid to the S Corp.

As a sole proprietor, you are likely filing a Form 1040 tax return with Schedule C - Profit or Loss from Business (Sole Proprietorship). The payment to S Corp will be reflected there, and you will only be taxed on your profit. not the full amount you received.
