Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hello my name is ***** ***** I will be able to answer your question regarding business formation for you and your wife.
If you would like the LLC to be a partnership then you would be classified by default for tax paying purposes as a partnership if you did not file form 8832
You should create a partnership agreement, which is a written document that details your partnership.
You can modify the partnership agreement during the tax year and even after the tax year, but any modifications need to be completed before your tax filing date of the 15 day of the third month (march) of the year.
If you have any further questions please let me know.
If you are satisfied with the answer, please rate and accept my answer so I may close out the question.
Thank you very much!
You are not at risk for any penalties for not filing the 8832 if you intend on staying a partnership
I understand. Since you now have a partner, you would be by default a partnership. Just ensure to pay any taxes due in a timely manner because the due date is in March and not April
You could complete the 8832 and select partnership just for reassurance since you added your wife. No harm in completing the form.
Thank you for the rating. If you do have any further questions please let me know.
