Can an owner of a corporation purposely take money from a corporation so its shareholders receive nothing?
The stockholders ARE the owners of a corporation. Technically no, because of what the earlier answer says, but it is possible for the board, majority shareholders, or officers to misappropriate the corporate assets to enrich themselves at the expense of the corporation and other shareholders. This is why courts invented the "derivative lawsuit."
How do you change corporation status from C corporation to a S corporation?
The shareholders would make an election by filing a form 2553 with the IRS. For an existing corporation, the form must be filed by March 15 of the year the election is to be effective. The election would then begin from January 1 of the year the election was made. Word of Caution - there can be adverse tax consequence for the corporation and the shareholders if an election is made without consulting a tax advisor.
Asked in The Difference Between
What is the difference between a closely held corporation and a public corporation?
A closely held corporation is one whose shares are owned by a few shareholders who are often family members, relatives, or friends. These "close" shareholders are often involved in the direct management of the corporation and sometimes enter into buy-and-sell agreements that prevent outsiders becoming shareholders. Conversely, publicly held corporations often have many shareholders, for which shares are traded on organized securities markets. These shareholders rarely participate in management activities.

How does double taxation of a corporate income occur?
Income to the corporation, as a legal "person", is taxable against the corporation. When the treasury pays dividends from its income to its shareholders, the dividend is taxable again as "income" to the shareholders. A "subchapter S-corporation" avoids this by skipping the corporate taxes and directly taxing the shareholders for any corporate income.
Can a creditor freeze your corporate bank account?
I wouldn't think so, because the whole idea of a corporation is that it is a separate entity unto itself. Example: the shareholders/officers of the corporation are not personally liable for the debts of the corporation. Therefore, why would the corporation be liable for the debts of the officers/shareholders?
