Hey happy to help here as my company (LawTrades) assists startups with this stuff all the time. As others have hinted, nothing requires you to pay yourself. With c-corps, the business entities file taxes separately from their owners. Owners of a c-corp pay taxes on corporate profits paid to them in the form of salaries, bonuses, and dividends, while any additional profits are awarded a corporate tax rate, usually lower than a personal income tax rate.
Although you don’t have a requirement to pay yourself a salary, there are other annual formalities you must follow as a Delaware c-corp. It’s probably a good idea to have a lawyer do a legal checkup on your company. You can get that done at, where we make it cheap and easy for startups to get solid legal advice.
