What is an LLC?
An LLC is a business entity that is created by filing Articles of Organization with the Minnesota Secretary of State’s office. LLCs are formed to conduct any lawful business or activity. An LLC may be for-profit or not-for-profit. Unlike a corporation, an LLC is not required to have a board of directors, shareholders, or officers.
An LLC is formed by one or more persons, called members. The members of an LLC elect to have the LLC taxed as either a partnership or a corporation. If the LLC is taxed as a partnership, the members report their share of the profits and losses on their individual income tax returns. If the LLC is taxed as a corporation, the LLC files a corporate income tax return. The members of an LLC taxed as a corporation do not report their share of the profits and losses on their individual income tax returns.
An LLC has certain rights and protections that are not available to other business entities such as corporations and partnerships. For example, an LLC member is not personally liable for debts of the LLC unless the member has personally guaranteed the debt.
