Some rules of the S-Corporation are that no more than 75 shareholders, all shareholders must agree to become an S-Corporation, all must be legal citizens in the United States, and stock can be of only one class.

In their personal income tax, shareholders must bear the loss or profit from the corporation. S-Corporation cannot get a reduction in dividends received and the 10% taxable income limit for charity reduction does not apply to them.
S-Corporation shareholders control it. They are not permitted to become another partnership. When corporations get bigger they will eventually become Corporation C because of all the S-Corporation rules and regulations.
Until then or the corporation is dissolved, S-Corporation will always be there. The corporation will be there even if the shareholders change. S-Corporation will automatically be considered a C-Corporation if all rules and regulations no longer exist for S-Corporation.
