It offers some legal protection for its owners - and some tax advantages, too. An LLC, like a corporation, protects its owners against personal liability for the firm's obligation• But, as in a partnership, all income, losses, deductions, credits and other tax issues are reported on the personal tax return of the owners, avoiding the double taxation of corporations. There are variations: A one-person LLC is taxed as a proprietorship with protection against personal liability for the company's debts. A general partnership LLC gets the tax advantages of the general partnership, again with liability protection• Similarly, a limited partnership can provide limited liability protection to all its members• An LLC can avoid the restrictions of an S corporation while still allowing owners to report income and losses on their own returns. LLCs offer many plusses and a few drawbacks. Ask us about them at: Best wishes for 307 W.
