First, some general information.
Unless you perform services in the US, or have some other business presence( such as US business assets - such as an office or warehouse - or a payroll, or agents), you may not HAVE a filing requirement, in terms of an income tax return.
However, in May, regulations were PROPOSED that might eventually require a disclosure statement.
Wholly-owned LLCs are generally disregarded for US income tax purposes unless the LLC elects to be treated as a corporation. Such a disregarded entity is not currently required to file Form 5472 (or comply with the record-keeping requirements) even if the owner of the entity is a foreign person. In addition, disregarded entities are not generally required to obtain EINs.
The proposed regulations will require a domestic disregarded entity that is wholly-owned by a foreign person to file Form 5472 to report its transactions with related persons (such as your taking distributions from your LLC)
Can you tell more more about what you do, your business does?
