LIMITED LIABILITY COMPANY (LLC) FORMATION
The formation of a Limited Liability Company, or LLC, allows its members to be protected from any liability, lawsuits, or creditors that may pursue the business. LLCs have become popular because they offer the personal liability protection of a corporation with the tax benefits of a partnership. It is a favored choice for businesses with few partners.
Our fee structure is unique to us as we strive to tailor our services for each client individually. We adapt price standards that are capable of fluctuating for each client. Clients may retain us for one or all of the above steps/services.
Our typical fee for an LLC Formation is $2,500, not including governmental fee and third-party expenses. We are happy to customize a proposal for yours during a consultation. Please see the below information.

- Members of a Limited Liability Company are able to deduct its operating losses against the member’s regular income to the extent permitted by law;
- The IRS does not consider a Limited Liability Company to be a distinct separate entity for tax purposes. As a result, members of the Limited Liability Company can determine how they wish to be taxed as follows:
- With a Single Member Limited Liability Company, the business is taxed like a sole proprietorship. Profits and losses are taxed through the single member’s personal federal tax return;
- With partners in a Limited Liability Company, members elect to be treated like a traditional partnership for tax purposes;
- By filing a Limited Liability Company as a corporation, members elect to be treated like a corporation for tax purposes;
- A Limited Liability Company is not subject to double-taxation like a corporation is, thus they avoid tax at the corporate level and only pay taxes at the member level.
- Managing members will have to include profits on their personal income taxes like a self-employment tax and pay for federal items like Medicare and Social Security;
- A Limited Liability Company has a limited lifespan, such that if all members depart the business, then it ceases to exist
