Unused LLCs and Corps

Today TaxMama® hears from several people who have questions about tax returns for entities they created – but never used. This recent question from Debbie, on behalf of one her clients, is far too common.    

Single Member LLC

  Today TaxMama® hears from Sheronda in the TaxQuips Forum, with this question – which is more common than you might think. She read this on the Delaware website “Single-member Delaware LLCs are “disregarded entities” according to IRS regulations, which means they have no U.S. income tax and no reporting due.” And asks, “Does this […]

Renting to LLC

Today TaxMama® hears from RJ in the TaxQuips Forum, with a travel question. “I am a single member LLC.

Partnership Split

Today TaxMama® hears from Ben in the TaxQuips Forum, with a question that raises another common issue.

Mileage and LLC

Today TaxMama® hears from Randal in the TaxQuips Forum with a sensible question. “I am an outside salesperson working as a sole proprietor, getting 1099s each year. My largest deduction is mileage. I earn less than $30k most years. If I setup an LLC to run my business through, will I lose my mileage deduction?”

Converting LLC to QJV
