Since you own the security in your own name now and will own 100% of the LLC when the security is transferred there is no US "sale". No sale = no capital gain = no capital gains tax. Basically you have this in your right pocket and move it into your left pocket. The nature of the item does not change nor does your ownership. You are the LLC.
