What Is A Limited Liability Company And What Are Its Tax Advantages?

A limited liability company, like a corporation, is set up and created under state law. Its owners are referred to as members. The entity gives its members the best of both worlds - Corporate liability protection with the advantages of partnership taxation. Forming a limited liability company is more expensive than forming a corporation and may not be necessary for your situation. Speak to your local CPA in detail to determine if forming or changing your entity status to a limited liability company is the correct choice for you.
