LLC Single Member

Filing taxes as a single-member LLC

If you own an LLC by yourself and haven’t opted to file your taxes as a corporation, you file your federal income taxes as a sole proprietor would. This means reporting your income and expenses on your personal income tax return (Form 1040). When you file as a sole proprietor, you pay taxes based on your personal income tax rate.

LLC Partnership

Filing taxes as a multi-member LLC

If you’re part of an LLC with multiple members, a Schedule K-1 must be prepared for each of its members. LLCs are considered pass-through or disregarded entities, meaning their profits and losses pass through directly to the business owners.

S Corporation

Changing your tax status to a C corporation means that the IRS treats your business as a separate taxpayer. Instead of letting the LLC’s corporate income and expenses flow through to their personal tax returns, the LLC owners are taxed separately from the company, and the LLC files its own separate corporate tax.

C Corporation

Filing as a C corporation means that the IRS treats your business as a separate taxpayer. Each shareholder will receive a K-1 that will be used to prepare personal returns.

1099 Independent Contractor

If you have received one or more 1099’s for independent contractor work performed, then you will need to include a Schedule C on your personal tax return. A Schedule C is neccessary to deduct business expenses from the 1099 income and reduce taxable income.

  • LLC Single Member
