depends on the nature of the corporation.
if it is a S corporation or LP (both pass
their income and income taxliability to its shareholders
or interest holders in the case of LP), the
income taxation is the same as that of your income
if it is a C corporation (unlikely if it is a small
business; or unwisely if it is a small business),
the income is taxable in the US (it is due to the
fact that the C corp is a US corporation).
However, you can transfer the income, even for the
C corporation, mostly anyway, outsidee of the US pretty
easily legally. Set up a chinese corporation (holding
or operating) that operates like a sub contractor
for the US corporation (if you're a legal resident of
the US, you better have someone else to hold that
Chinese corp so that there is no income repatriation).
the Chinese corp generates revenue through performing
the actual work for the US corp (in essence, you increase
the cost base for the US corp, thus decrease its taxable
income to IRS).
As long as the transfer pricing is reasonable (arm's
length pricing) and reasonably defensible in court,
IRS wouldn't chanllenge you.
But do talk to a tax lawyer.
