What is an Entity Classification Election?


Entity Classification Election Filing Service


An Entity Classification Election is a filing submitted to the federal Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to tell them how to tax your business entity. For example, a single owner Limited Liability Company (LLC) may file to tell the IRS to tax them like a Sole Proprietorship. Or that same LLC may file to tell the IRS to tax them like a Corporation. Please note that the document preparation and filing service we offer for this election is only for newly-formed LLCs in particular.
