does an LLC which is taxed as an S Corporation have stock

Resolved Question:

An LLC doesn't have "stock" in the general sense. Even if it is taxed as an S-Corp, there is no stock.


The owners of an LLC are called members - not shareholders. And they own membership interests - not shares of stock.

A membership interest in usually stated as a percentage. So in an LLC with five owners who have invested equally in the business, each would normally have a 20% membership interest.
