Entity Classification Election Filing Service


The Limited Liability Company (LLC) entity type is flexible on how it can be taxed. It can be taxed like a Sole Proprietorship or Partnership (depending on if it has one owner or multiple), or it can be taxed like a Corporation. This election serves to tell the Internal Revenue Service which one of those options the LLC chooses.
