Limited Liability Companies, or LLCs, are often established by business owners to protect assets and limit liabilities. Most often when an LLC is organized correctly, net taxes are not typically increased or decreased. But, there are some exceptions to this.
Taxpayers can decide to have their LLCs taxed like “S corporations” as opposed to “C corporations.” “S Corporations” are slightly less cumbersome in tax administration than “C Corporations.” Taxpayers can also decide to have their LLCs taxed like partnerships if there is more than one owner. If the LLC only has one member, then it can be taxed as a sole proprietorship. Most business attorneys will consult with a client’s tax preparation professional before advising on how an LLC should be taxed.
