I have a legitimate LLC in the state of TN, in the wedding

I have a legitimate LLC in the state of TN, in the wedding industry. We have started a bridal show with a charity nexus. We are awarding a couple with financial help in planning their wedding. Are we able to receive cash gifts, sponsorships, as long as we do not indicate it is a donation?? (it will be reported as income to the business of course and applicable sales tax and revenue claimed as well) I inquired of one CPA regarding the benefit to the "sponsor" and he advised that a sponsor may still be able to deduct it as a legitimate "marketing expense". is this accurate? if yes, this may allow for better funding of the event until such time as we can get our "non-profit" filed.JA: Has anything been officially filed? If so, what?Customer: Originally it was going to be my business presenting "Brides On A Budget Expo", I reserved a name with the State of TN as a for profit, but I am re-thinking my plan.

Have developed a Facebook page which has grown to over 800

Have developed a Facebook page which has grown to over 800 followers that deals exclusively with adult developmentally disabled. The page has become quite active and through its followers we have been able to have a conference, provide consultations with followers, and have started to have selected coffees throughout the state of NJ to inform parents/guardians of their rights. As a retired teacher I have funded these things myself and wonder if I should set the Page up as a non-profit to be able to deduct any future expenses or to qualify for any grants I might find?Thank you so muchMaryalice

I think I found one way to do it, without opening a bank account in the first year. Could you please give your opinion on the folllowing, in the sense if I take the following steps, will I have my separate entity veil fort the LLC1. I set up a (Wyoming) LLC in Feb 20172. In my operating agreement I mention "first year's operation will be funded by its single member advancing website costs as his investment"3. In 2017, I spend $100 on the web-site4. In 2018 when I file my Personal taxes, I note in Schedule C that my LLC had $100 invested and $100 expenses combining to zerothank you

I have a website, which might one day generate money. At the

Hello,I have a website, which might one day generate money. At the moment I want to use it for showing it to interviewers ( I am a programmer ). I want to have liability protection, in case someone sees my website and thinks it is similar to their idea or what not, basically if someone trying suing me in regards ***** ***** web project. Now I want to start a single owner LLC to get the liability protection, but it seems that to get the protection I would need to get the LLC's finances separate and minutes etc. , so that a suing lawyer will not be able to breach the corporate veil.My issue is that I am not planning to make money from the web site/project anytime soon, and I don't see it making sense that I open a bank account for it now, and create minutes for meetings.What is my best bet to get liability protection on this project which is non-profit for now and the near future? thank you
