Not Sure Which Business Entity to Select?

Limited Liability Company (LLC)

A Limited Liability Company is formed by filing articles of organization with the individual state’s Secretary of State. Owners of an LLC are called members. Members may include individuals, corporations, other LLCs, and foreign entities. An LLC can be formed by one or more members, and there is no maximum number of members.

LLCs are generally the preferred entity structure for certain professionals and landlord as it is a corporate structure where the members (owners) cannot be held personally liable for the company's liabilities. LLCs have flexibility as the owners can file as a partnership, S Corporation or even sole proprietor since the LLC is really a legal and not tax designation.

A Trust is a legal entity created under state law and is a fiduciary relationship in which one party, known as a Trustor, gives another party, known at the Trustee, the right to legal ownership of assets (including property) for the benefit of another.

The most common types of Trusts are Irrevocable and Revocable Trusts:

  • Irrevocable Trust – The Trustor has no control of the trust (the trust cannot be repealed or annulled) and the trust will pay tax.
  • Revocable Trust – A revocable trust is a trust that may be altered or terminated during the Trustor’s lifetime. Since the trust may be altered at any time until the Trustor’s death, it is considered part of the Trustor’s estate and is subject to taxation.
