Reasons to Form an LLC

Limited liability companies, or LLCs, are becoming more and more popular, and it's easy to see why. They combine the personal liability protection of a corporation with the tax benefits and simplicity of a partnership. In other words, the owners (or members) of an LLC are not, absent special circumstances, personally liable for the LLC's debts and liabilities, but also have the benefit of more flexible tax treatment. Moreover, LLCs are more flexible and require less ongoing paperwork than an S corporation.
