Why you should consider the tax ramifications of SMLLCs
Abstract: A “single-member limited liability company” (SMLLC) holds properties in order to distance the investors from various liabilities. It can also avoid double taxation. But this article discusses why, before setting up such an entity, it’s important to consider the tax ramifications. For example, when using an SMLLC to own a partnership interest, there may be negative tax repercussions that wouldn’t necessarily be the same if one owned the partnership interest as an individual.
