What this means

My business is an LLC. Why does my prepared form have a different entity type marked?


Federal Tax ID (EIN) Filing Service


LLCs are a type of business entity created by state law instead of federal law and the Internal Revenue Service has not created a tax classification specifically for LLCs. Instead, other existing federal tax classifications are applied: Corporation, Partnership, or Sole Proprietor. An LLC is classified by the IRS as one of these types of entities for federal tax purposes.
