j0439255A better way to ask this question is “Was I profitable?”  rather than “did I get paid in my small business?”  The short answer to this question is if you were profitable, then yes you will be taxed on those profits!  The government doesn’t really care if you brought those profits home via payroll or owners’ draw or if you left them in your business, it is still considered taxable income to you, if you are profitable. 

Depending on your filing status of your LLC, this determines the degree to which your profits will be taxed.  If you are partnership or sole proprietor, then your 100% of your profits will be taxed for social security and medicare.  If you are an S Corporation underneath your LLC, then your business profits will be taxed at your regular income tax rate.

The answer to your question is: you pay taxes if you were profitable.  Your income statement or profit and loss statement will let you know if you were profitable.
