Hello! I am a CPA here to assist you with your tax
questions. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.
Different expert here. Hope your night is going well.
According to the IRS, "Only a member manager of an LLC can sign the partnership tax return. And only a member manager can represent the LLC as the tax matters partner under the consolidated audit
proceedings in sections 6221 through 6234. A member manager is any owner of an interest
in the LLC who, alone or together with others, has the continuing authority to make the management decisions necessary to conduct the business for which the LLC was formed. If there are no elected or designated member managers, each owner is treated as a member manager."
So, it is the member that must file the tax return, not the manager.
Hope this helps.
