LLCs: How limited is your liability?
Abstract: Many real estate investors hold title to their investment properties through a limited liability company (LLC). While LLC rules vary by state, this structure protects real estate investors from personal liability beyond the member’s equity investment. An LLC’s administration is fairly uncomplicated, and it offers potential tax benefits. However, this article reminds readers that liability protection under an LLC isn’t unlimited, and the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) made both positive and negative changes to the tax rules that affect LLCs.
