Hi, my name is Mark. I will be happy to help you with your questions. It sounds like this is a single member LLC. Please correct me if I am wrong.

No a corp with two officers..presidential and treasurer. 100,000 shares issued
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
shares remained with one owner
Tax Professional: Mark Taylor, Certified Public Accountant (CPA) replied 1 year ago

Why do you believe it should be treated as a disregarded entity?

Ask Your Own Tax Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
because page 4 of 8832 instructions said an entity by default rules is disregarded if there is one owner, from IRS.gov
Tax Professional: Mark Taylor, Certified Public Accountant (CPA) replied 1 year ago

That would apply to an LLC. A LLC is treated by default as a partnership unless there is only one member. A partnership would need to have two or more members. It is acceptable for a corporation to have one shareholder.

No, it would be treated as a corporation not as a disregarded entity.
