Why would someone use LLC after a corporation name?
An LLC and a traditional C corporation are two different things. If you will show me the exact usage then I can assist you further.

My business is a concessions business, that my husband and I are going to run. The concession business will travel from one event to another throughout the east coast, throughout the year. We have a truck, concession trailer, and a camper that we will be traveling with. We do not want the business connected with our house or personal property. Currently we own our primary home and a rental property.

You can use an LLC to run this business. It will protect your personal assets and home from any liabilities that arise out of the business. An LLC is called a limited liability company. It will also give you flow through taxation so that you only pay tax on your business income one time.

I am sorry can you clarify please - It will also give you flow through taxation so that you only pay tax on your business income one time. This means that I would not have to file taxes quarterly? What type of taxes are we talking income taxes from the business? I will have to file state sales tax quarterly wouldn't I?

No, you will still have to file quarterly taxes as well as State taxes, etc.

 

What we are talking about is federal income tax that is owed on the money that the business makes. Normally, for example, Exxon corporation shareholders would pay taxes 2 times on the income that Exxon earns. Exxon itself would file a tax return and the Exxon shareholders would also pay taxes on the dividend income that they receive.

 

Here, if you open an LLC, your LLC income can be treated as sole proprietorship income and thus you only pay tax on it one time:

Okay, I do understand that but what if I get more concessions that I am running for example. I own the current concession stand that I call Crazy 'bout' Crisp, which is apple crisp. and the main name of the company (LLC?)is Hendricks Concessions. Would I do the permits and such as Hendricks Concessions dba Crazy 'bout' Crisp and the next one lets say Darlene's lunch because I am selling hamburgers and hotdogs, would I call that on on the permits and such Hendricks Concessions dba Darlene's lunch?
Yes, exactly, that is one way to go about doing it.

So if I were to go LLC, then I would do it as Hendricks Concessions, LLC dba Crazy 'bout' Crisp right?

Oh, I think what you are telling me about corporations is that I would be paying income tax twice and doing paperwork twice if I am a corporation and not a LLC, as the corporation I would be filing Income form the business less any dividends paid out to the shareholders and then as the share holder I would be filing again for the dividends which would be a waste of time only extra paperwork correct?

1. yes, correct

2. almost correct: Yes, the C corp pays income tax twice and files paper work twice. An LLC can get away with only paying tax on the income one time. Still may have added paper work with LLC.
