As a sole proprietor or as a single-member LLC you are the only owner, and as a result, you do not take a salary or a wage from a business. Instead, you can simply take out excess cash from the business, which is known as an owner draw, to pay yourself.
Draws and distributions are simply a mechanism that allows owners to take out excess cash from the business. In pass-through entities, there are no tax consequences for doing either an owner draw, distribution, or a cash infusion in the normal course of business. This concept often creates a level of confusion for founders not versed in a few basic principles of accounting.
