Online Tax Filing

Online tax filing Publication 3402 - Main Content Table of Contents What is a Limited Liability Company? Classification of an LLC LLCs Classified as Partnerships LLCs Classified as Disregarded Entities LLCs Classified as Corporations Subsequent Elections How To Get More InformationInternal Revenue Service Small Business Administration Other Federal Agencies What is a Limited Liability Company? For purposes of this publication, a limited liability company (LLC) is a business entity organized in the United States under state law. Online tax filing Unlike a partnership, all of the members of an LLC have limited personal liability for its debts. Online tax filing An LLC may be classified for federal income tax purposes as a partnership, corporation, or an entity disregarded as separate from its owner by applying the rules in Regulations section 301. Online tax filing 7701-3. Online tax filing The information in this publication applies to LLCs in general, and different rules may apply to special situations, including banks, insurance companies, or nonprofit organizations that are LLCs or that own LLCs. Online tax filing Check your state's requirements and the federal tax regulations for further information. Online tax filing Classification of an LLC Default classification rules. Online tax filing   An LLC with at least two members is classified as a partnership for federal income tax purposes. Online tax filing An LLC with only one member is treated as an entity disregarded as separate from its owner for income tax purposes (but as a separate entity for purposes of employment tax and certain excise taxes). Online tax filing Also, an LLC's federal tax classification can subsequently change under certain default rules discussed later. Online tax filing Elected classification. Online tax filing   If an LLC does not choose to be classified under the above default classifications, it can elect to be classified as an association taxable as a corporation or as an S corporation. Online tax filing After an LLC has determined its federal tax classification, it can later elect to change that classification. Online tax filing For details, see Subsequent Elections, later. Online tax filing LLCs Classified as Partnerships If an LLC has at least two members and is classified as a partnership, it generally must file Form 1065, U. Online tax filing S. Online tax filing Return of Partnership Income. Online tax filing Generally, an LLC classified as a partnership is subject to the same filing and reporting requirements as partnerships. Online tax filing For certain purposes, members of an LLC are treated as limited partners in a limited partnership. Online tax filing For example, LLC members are treated as limited partners for purposes of material participation under the passive activity limitation rules (see Temporary Regulation section 1. Online tax filing 469-5T(e)). Online tax filing See the Instructions for Form 1065 for reporting rules that apply specifically to LLCs. Online tax filing Member manager. Online tax filing   Only a member manager of an LLC can sign the partnership tax return. Online tax filing And only a member manager can represent the LLC as the tax matters partner under the consolidated audit proceedings in sections 6221 through 6234. Online tax filing A member manager is any owner of an interest in the LLC who, alone or together with others, has the continuing authority to make the management decisions necessary to conduct the business for which the LLC was formed. Online tax filing If there are no elected or designated member managers, each owner is treated as a member manager. Online tax filing Change in default classification. Online tax filing   If the number of members in an LLC classified as a partnership is reduced to only one member, it becomes an entity disregarded as separate from its owner under Regulations section 301. Online tax filing 7701-3(f)(2). Online tax filing However, if the LLC has made an election to be classified as a corporation (discussed later) and that elective classification is in effect at the time of the change in membership, the default classification as a disregarded entity will not apply. Online tax filing   Other tax consequences of a change in membership, such as recognition of gain or loss, are determined by the transactions through which an interest in the LLC is acquired or disposed of. Online tax filing If a partnership that becomes a disregarded entity as a result of a decrease in the number of members makes an election to be classified as a corporation, the applicable deemed transactions discussed under Subsequent Elections, later, apply. Online tax filing Example 1. Online tax filing Ethel and Francis are members of an LLC classified as a partnership for federal tax purposes. Online tax filing Each holds an equal membership interest. Online tax filing The LLC does not hold any unrealized receivables or substantially appreciated inventory. Online tax filing Ethel sells her entire interest in the LLC to Francis for $10,000. Online tax filing After the sale, the business is continued by the LLC, which is owned solely by Francis. Online tax filing No entity classification election is made after the sale to treat the LLC as a corporation for federal tax purposes. Online tax filing The partnership terminates when Francis buys Ethel's entire interest. Online tax filing Ethel must treat the transaction as the sale of a partnership interest and must report gain or loss, if any, resulting from the sale of her partnership interest. Online tax filing For purposes of determining the tax treatment of Francis, the partnership is deemed to make a liquidating distribution of all of its assets to Ethel and Francis, and after this distribution, Francis is treated as acquiring the assets deemed to have been distributed to Ethel in liquidation of Ethel's partnership interest. Online tax filing Francis's basis in the assets attributable to Ethel's one-half interest in the partnership is $10,000, the purchase price for Ethel's partnership interest. Online tax filing Upon the termination of the partnership, Francis is considered to receive a distribution of those assets attributable to Francis's former interest in the partnership. Online tax filing Francis must recognize gain or loss, if any, on the deemed distribution of the assets to the extent required by Internal Revenue Code section 731(a). Online tax filing See Partnership Distributions in Publication 541. Online tax filing Example 2. Online tax filing George and Henrietta are members of an LLC classified as a partnership for federal tax purposes. Online tax filing Each holds an equal membership interest. Online tax filing The LLC does not hold any unrealized receivables or substantially appreciated inventory. Online tax filing George and Henrietta each sell their entire interests in the LLC to Ian, an unrelated person, in exchange for $10,000. Online tax filing After the sale, the business is continued by the LLC, which is owned solely by Ian. Online tax filing No entity classification election is made after the sale to treat the LLC as a corporation for federal tax purposes. Online tax filing The partnership terminates when Ian purchases the entire interests of George and Henrietta in the LLC. Online tax filing George and Henrietta must report gain or loss, if any, resulting from the sale of their partnership interests. Online tax filing For purposes of classifying the acquisition by Ian, the partnership is deemed to make a liquidating distribution of its assets to George and Henrietta. Online tax filing Immediately following this distribution, Ian is deemed to acquire, by purchase, all of the former partnership's assets. Online tax filing   For more details on the preceding two examples, see Revenue Ruling 99-6, 1999-6 I. Online tax filing R. Online tax filing B. Online tax filing 6. Online tax filing You can find Revenue Ruling 99-6 at www. Online tax filing irs. Online tax filing gov/pub/irs-irbs/irb99-06. Online tax filing pdf. Online tax filing LLCs Classified as Disregarded Entities If an LLC has only one member and is classified as an entity disregarded as separate from its owner, its income, deductions, gains, losses, and credits are reported on the owner's income tax return. Online tax filing For example, if the owner of the LLC is an individual, the LLC's income and expenses would be reported on the following schedules filed with the owner's Form 1040: Schedule C, Profit or Loss from Business (Sole Proprietorship); Schedule C-EZ, Net Profit From Business (Sole Proprietorship); Schedule E, Supplemental Income and Loss; or Schedule F, Profit or Loss From Farming. Online tax filing Employment tax and certain excise taxes. Online tax filing   A single-member LLC that is classified as a disregarded entity for income tax purposes is treated as a separate entity for purposes of employment tax and certain excise taxes. Online tax filing For wages paid after January 1, 2009, the single-member LLC is required to use its name and employer identification number (EIN) for reporting and payment of employment taxes. Online tax filing A single-member LLC is also required to use its name and EIN to register for excise tax activities on Form 637; pay and report excise taxes reported on Forms 720, 730, 2290, and 11-C; and claim any refunds, credits, and payments on Form 8849. Online tax filing See the employment and excise tax returns for more information. Online tax filing Self-employment tax rule for disregarded entity LLCs. Online tax filing   An individual owner of a single-member LLC classified as a disregarded entity is not an employee of the LLC. Online tax filing Instead, the owner is subject to tax on the net earnings from self-employment of the LLC which is treated in the same manner as a sole-proprietorship. Online tax filing Example 3. Online tax filing LLC is a disregarded entity owned by Irene. Online tax filing LLC has three employees (Kent, Patricia, and Tex) and pays wages. Online tax filing LLC is treated as an entity separate from its owner for purposes of employment taxes. Online tax filing For the wages paid to Kent, Patricia, and Tex, LLC is liable for income tax withholding, Federal Insurance Contributions Act (FICA) taxes, and Federal Unemployment Tax Act (FUTA) taxes. Online tax filing In addition, LLC must file under its name and EIN the applicable employment tax returns; make timely employment tax deposits; and file with the Social Security Administration and furnish to LLC's employees (Kent, Patricia, and Tex) Forms W-2, Wage and Tax Statement. Online tax filing Irene is self-employed for purposes of the self-employment tax. Online tax filing Thus, Irene is subject to self-employment tax on her net earnings from self-employment with respect to LLC's activities. Online tax filing Irene is not an employee of LLC for purposes of employment taxes. Online tax filing Because LLC is treated as a sole proprietorship of Irene for income tax purposes, Irene must report the income and expenses from LLC on her Schedule C. Online tax filing Irene will figure the tax due on her net earnings from self-employment on Schedule SE. Online tax filing Irene can also deduct one-half of her self-employment tax on line 27 of her Form 1040. Online tax filing Taxpayer identification number. Online tax filing   For all income tax purposes, a single-member LLC classified as a disregarded entity must use the owner's social security number (SSN) or EIN. Online tax filing This includes all information returns and reporting related to income tax. Online tax filing For example, if a disregarded entity LLC that is owned by an individual is required to provide a Form W-9, Request for Taxpayer Identification Number and Certification, the LLC must provide the owner's SSN or EIN, not the LLC's EIN. Online tax filing   However, most new single-member LLCs classified as a disregarded entity will need to obtain an EIN for the LLC. Online tax filing An LLC will need an EIN if it has any employees or if it will be required to file any of the excise tax forms listed above (see Employment tax and certain excise taxes earlier). Online tax filing See Form SS-4, Application for Employer Identification Number, for information on applying for an EIN. Online tax filing Change in default classification. Online tax filing   If a single-member LLC classified as a disregarded entity for income tax purposes acquires an additional member, it becomes a partnership under Regulations section 301. Online tax filing 7701-3(f)(2). Online tax filing However, if the LLC has made an election to be classified as a corporation (discussed later) and that elective classification is in effect at the time of the change in membership, the default classification as a partnership will not apply. Online tax filing   Other tax consequences of a change in membership, such as recognition of gain or loss, are determined by the transactions through which an interest in the LLC is acquired or disposed of. Online tax filing If a disregarded entity that becomes a partnership as a result of an increase in the number of members makes an election to be classified as a corporation, the applicable deemed transactions discussed in Subsequent Elections, later, apply. Online tax filing Example 4. Online tax filing Bart, who is not related to Alain, buys 50% of Alain's interest in an LLC that is a disregarded entity for $5,000. Online tax filing Alain does not contribute any portion of the $5,000 to the LLC. Online tax filing Alain and Bart continue to operate the business of the LLC as co-owners of the LLC. Online tax filing The LLC is converted to a partnership when the new member, Bart, buys an interest in the disregarded entity from the owner, Alain. Online tax filing Bart's buying a 50% interest in Alain's ownership interest in the LLC is treated as Bart's buying a 50% interest in each of the LLC's assets, which are treated as owned directly by Alain for federal income tax purposes. Online tax filing Immediately thereafter, Alain and Bart are treated as contributing their respective interests in those assets to a partnership in exchange for ownership interests in the partnership. Online tax filing Alain recognizes gain or loss from the deemed sale to Bart of the 50% interest in the assets. Online tax filing Neither Alain nor Bart recognizes any gain or loss as a result of the deemed contribution of the assets to the partnership. Online tax filing Example 5. Online tax filing Charles, who is not related to Danielle, contributes $10,000 to an LLC owned by Danielle for a 50% ownership interest in the LLC. Online tax filing The LLC uses all of the contributed cash in its business. Online tax filing Charles and Danielle continue to operate the business of the LLC as co-owners of the LLC. Online tax filing The LLC is converted from a disregarded entity to a partnership when Charles contributes cash to the LLC. Online tax filing Charles's contribution is treated as a contribution to a partnership in exchange for an ownership interest in the partnership. Online tax filing Danielle is treated as contributing all of the assets of the LLC to the partnership in exchange for a partnership interest. Online tax filing Neither Charles nor Danielle recognizes gain or loss as a result of the conversion of the disregarded entity to a partnership. Online tax filing   For more details on the preceding two examples, see Revenue Ruling 99-5, 1999-6 I. Online tax filing R. Online tax filing B. Online tax filing 8. Online tax filing You can find Revenue Ruling 99-5 at www. Online tax filing irs. Online tax filing gov/pub/irs-irbs/irb99-06. Online tax filing pdf. Online tax filing LLCs Classified as Corporations An LLC with either a single member or more than one member can elect to be classified as a corporation rather than be classified as a partnership or disregarded entity under the default rules discussed earlier. Online tax filing File Form 8832, Entity Classification Election, to elect classification as a C corporation. Online tax filing File Form 2553, Election by a Small Business Corporation, to elect classification as an S corporation. Online tax filing LLCs electing classification as an S corporation are not required to file Form 8832 to elect classification as a corporation before filing Form 2553. Online tax filing By filing Form 2553, an LLC is deemed to have elected classification as a corporation in addition to the S corporation classification. Online tax filing If the LLC elects to be classified as a corporation by filing Form 8832, a copy of the LLC's Form 8832 must be attached to the federal income tax return of each direct and indirect owner of the LLC for the tax year of the owner that includes the date on which the election took effect. Online tax filing Example 6. Online tax filing Classification as a corporation without an S election. Online tax filing Wanda and Sylvester are members of an LLC. Online tax filing They agree that the LLC should be classified as a corporation but do not want to elect to have the LLC be treated as an S corporation. Online tax filing The LLC must file Form 8832. Online tax filing Example 7. Online tax filing Classification as a corporation with an S election. Online tax filing Evelyn and Carol are members of an LLC. Online tax filing They agree that the LLC should be classified as an S corporation. Online tax filing The LLC must file Form 2553 instead of Form 8832. Online tax filing If the LLC is classified as a corporation, it must file a corporation income tax return. Online tax filing If it is a C corporation, it is taxed on its taxable income and distributions to the members are includible in the members' gross income to the extent of the corporation's earnings and profits (double taxation). Online tax filing If it is an S corporation, the corporation is generally not subject to any income tax and the income, deductions, gains, losses, and credits of the corporation “pass through” to the members. Online tax filing Corporations generally file either: Form 1120, U. Online tax filing S. Online tax filing Corporation Income Tax Return; or Form 1120S, U. Online tax filing S. Online tax filing Income Tax Return for an S Corporation. Online tax filing For more information on the income taxation of corporations and their shareholders, see Publication 542, Corporations. Online tax filing For more information on the income taxation of S corporations and their shareholders, see the Instructions for Form 1120S, U. Online tax filing S. Online tax filing Income Tax Return for an S Corporation. Online tax filing Subsequent Elections An LLC can elect to change its classification. Online tax filing Generally, once an LLC has elected to change its classification, it cannot elect again to change it classification during the 60 months after the effective date of the election. Online tax filing An election by a newly formed LLC that is effective on the date of formation is not considered a change for purposes of this limitation. Online tax filing For more information and exceptions, see Regulations section 301. Online tax filing 7701-3(c) and the Form 8832 instructions. Online tax filing An election to change classification can have significant tax consequences based on the following transactions that are deemed to occur as a result of the election. Online tax filing Partnership to corporation. Online tax filing   An election to change classification from a partnership to a corporation will be treated as if the partnership contributed all of its assets and liabilities to the corporation in exchange for stock and the partnership then immediately liquidated by distributing the stock to its partners. Online tax filing   For more information, see Partnership Distributions in Publication 541 and Property Exchanged for Stock in Publication 542. Online tax filing Corporation to partnership. Online tax filing   An election to change classification from a corporation to a partnership will be treated as if the corporation distributed all of its assets and liabilities to its shareholders in liquidation and the shareholders then immediately contributed all of the distributed assets and liabilities to a new partnership. Online tax filing   For more information, see Contribution of Property in Publication 541 and Distributions to Shareholders in Publication 542. Online tax filing Corporation to disregarded entity. Online tax filing   An election to change classification from a corporation to a disregarded entity will be treated as if the corporation distributed all of its assets and liabilities to its single owner in liquidation. Online tax filing   For more information, see Distributions to Shareholders in Publication 542. Online tax filing Disregarded entity to corporation. Online tax filing   An election to change classification from a disregarded entity to a corporation will be treated as if the owner of the disregarded entity contributed all of the assets and liabilities to the corporation in exchange for stock.
