Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hi from Just Answer. I'mCustomer and can assist.
Liability protection is a great reason for the transfer. Most advisors will caution you away from c corps due to the extra tax on appreciation when you sell. The S Corp also has a hidden extra tax, the built in gains tax, on real estate. But I think your protection is the key, as my sense is you just want to hold this land long term. For a business purpose.
Either Corp or an LLC will do what you want. I can offer one more piece of advice:
Umbrella liability insurance. It is insurance for issues your business may have that kicks in if you are sued personally. Inexpensive, and all with the peace of mind. Review the coverage with your insurance agent.
