Hello my name is ***** ***** I will be able to assist you today.

For federal tax paying purposes sole proprietorship LLC's that are not incorporated are considered disregarded entities.

I have included a link below along with an excerpt from the IRS web site in regards ***** ***** LLC

https://www.irs.gov/businesses/small-businesses-self-employed/limited-liability-company-llc

"Depending on elections made by the LLC and the number of members, the IRS will treat an LLC as either a corporation, partnership, or as part of the LLC’s owner’s tax return (a “disregarded entity”). "

You will not receive any further information of how to manage a LLC unless you hire an accountant, lawyer, financial planner or tax advisor.

Let me know if you require further assistance with this matter.

At the conclusion of this question, I ask that you take the time and scroll to the top of the page and select 3 or more stars to positively rate my response so that I can receive credit for assisting you.
