Welcome to spotting the issues where we discuss business and legal issues impacting entrepreneurs and growing companies I'm Emily Campbell I'm a real estate investor and internet entrepreneur and managing member of the Campbell firm PLLC the general practice law firm based in Manhattan I have guest lectured at Columbia University's Lange Center for Entrepreneurship Parsons School of Design and the School of Visual Arts and many micro entrepreneur program programs and have been involved in business plan competitions at Columbia University's Lange Center for Entrepreneurship Farouk's Field Center for Entrepreneurship at Fordham University I am at an adjunct professor of law at New York law school where I teach drafting contracts and advising entrepreneurs today's discussion is s-corporations versus LLC's many entrepreneurs are trying to determine whether to set up an S corporation or an LLC we're going to set aside the C corporation discussion for another seminar but we're going to focus today on S corporations versus LLC's which are typical choices for small businesses it's important to understand and to make an appropriate decision before you form your entity in order to make sure that you choose the right entity because setting up an entity that is not the right form for you could result in more costly reincorporation at a later point S corporations and LLC's are not identical even though many accountants think they're identical for a number of reasons including the fact that these are both pass-through type of entities meaning the income or losses flows directly on to individual shareholders tax returns now this is a tax an advantageous position for both of these kinds of companies but they have limitations each of them and the S corporation has more limitations and then the LLC and we'll talk about those two distinctions so that you can see which corporation structure would be more appropriate for your business of course we'll be consulting with your own account and an attorney to determine your specific needs but we're going to talk about these in generalities the S corporation is limited to 100 shareholders they IRS increased this designation the federal government passed laws it used to be a 75 shareholder limit but it was increased to 100 shareholders now this may sound like a lot of shareholders but if you are trying to raise capital from other people or have multiple people who maybe what may want to offer equity to in return for compensation for doing particular work or so forth this 100 limitation may prove difficult for you the LLC does not have any such distinction they do not have any limitation on the number or type of shareholders now the S corporation in addition to having the 100 minimum I mean maximum partly is also limited by the fact that there are types of shareholders that you cannot have in an S corporation you cannot have anyone who is not a US citizen or a green card holder now this is.


How important is it to file a Section 83 (b) election for an LLC S-Corp?
I concur with Karl Stevens in fact most S Corporations today are LLC's at the legal entity level.  S Corp and LLC are two very different questions. As to the original question about making an 83(b) election, it is very critical that you understand the consequences of making the election for restricted stock in an S Corp, but if you should or should not make the election will depend on the specific circumstances and both the tax impact on the person receiving the grants and the current S Corp shareholders.If you receive a stock grant for an S Corp and make an 83(b) election then you are considered as being an owner of the S Corp.  That means you are required to be allocated a proportionate share of the income of the S Corp each year based on your ownership percentage and if the current shareholders receive a distribution of cash, you have to also receive a proportionate distribution.You also have to take into consideration that making an 83(b) election means the grant recipients by being considered shareholders could terminate the S election if any one of them is a ineligible S Corp shareholder or if adding shareholders puts the number of shareholders over 100.If you do not make the election, then you are not considered a shareholder and thus cannot receive distributions from the corporation and the corporation may be required to accrue any shareholder benefits that would otherwise be due to you during the vesting period.Finally the company needs to be very sure that nothing in the vesting and grant agreements creates a second class of stock that would terminate the S election.You will not know how "important" the 83(b) election is until after it is too late to do anything about it.  You have 30 days from the date you receive the grant to make the 83(b) election, but all the election does is accelerate you recognizing income for the receipt of restricted stock, that you would otherwise not have to report as taxable income.  You do this because if you recognize the value of the stock today as ordinary income, then years from now when you sell the stock  you get capital gain treatment on the appreciation in value between today and that future date.  If there was a substantial increase in value in the future, then making the 83(b) election was very important and will greatly reduce your tax burden.  If instead the value of stock decreases or becomes worthless, then you made the wrong choice as you would have been better off to  have not filed the election.You will often hear people say "you should always file an 83(b) when you receive restricted stock".  That statement is based on the fact that no reasonable person would take payment for work done in the form of stock that they can't sell today, unless they believed that the stock was going to be worth a lot more in the future when they can sell it.  Add to that the fact that the resulting tax liability when you do sell the stock can be 1/2 of what it would be if you did not make the 83(b) election and you get that filing the election is the safe choice.  However, the failure rate of startup companies would tell you that making an 83(b) election is probably the wrong decision just as often as it is the right decision.
If a one-member LLC wants to avoid self-employment taxes, is it better to elect S-Corp tax treatment (and remain LLC) or convert to S-Corp?
You aren’t disadvantaged by using an LLC as the platform for your S corporation instead of a regular corporation. In fact, the attorneys with whom I used to teach the “Choice of Entity: S Corporation vs. Limited Liability Company” class at Golden Gate University’s tax school used to argue pretty compellingly that LLCs were actually the superior platform.As compared to using a corporation, an LLC offers up these advantages:Simpler governance for an LLC as compared to a corporation.You can start and end the business’s “life” as something simpler to account for (like a sole proprietorship) which saves time and makes things easier on the front and back end.In some states, your investment in an LLC is “safer” and more “secure” than an investment in a regular corporation because a creditor may not be able to seize your ownership interest in an LLC. (A creditor often can seize your interest in a regular corporation.) With an LLC, in comparison, in many states a creditor can only get a charging order against the LLC member. A charging order basically is an order from a judge that any money the LLC wants to pay the member needs to be redirected to the creditor.
How expensive is it to retro an elect S corp from an LLC for last years taxes?
Per IRS Rev Procedure 2009–41, a late entity classification election is allowed up to 3 years and 75 days past the effective date of the election, assuming that no other election forms have yet been filed during that time, and that no other returns have been filed that would be inconsistent with the entity you are electing.In layman’s terms• if you haven’t yet filed the classification form (Form 8832), and you haven’t filed any returns that say you’re really a sole proprietorship or a partnership, then you can still elect to be taxed as an S corporation up to 3 years and 75 days from the date the form is filed.As far as the cost goes, there is no charge imposed by the IRS for this election. The only cost would be the cost of a professional to fill out and file the form for you• or you can file it yourself for free. The form is not difficult to complete. You can download a pdf fillable version here: https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/.... The instructions on where to file the form are included with the form.If you prefer to have a tax professional complete it for you, I would not think it would be too expensive since it’s a fairly simple form to fill out and send in, so maybe $100-$200, depending on the tax professional that you choose to go with since hourly rates can vary from firm to firm.
Can you change current  LLC S corp election to C corp  before 12/31 this year?
NOT retroactive to 1/1/15.  However, you can effective today.  Then you get to file 2 corporate returns for this year an S and a C.
Is it highly recommended to hire a CPA to elect my llc as an S-Corp?
It is not a difficult form,(I charge $25 to prepare the form for you.) but I do see business owners frequently make mistakes trying to do it themselves.  I would say it is a matter of how confident you are that you can understand and follow all the instructions for the 2553.It is probably more important that you have a CPA prepare the S Corp tax return each year, help with payroll tax reporting and help you with keeping an accurate set of accounting records. Even if you screw up the 2553, I can usually fix it. It is all those ongoing requirements that usually get S Corp owners in trouble.
How do I fill out a W9 correctly for a single member LLC that has not decided on a tax election yet?
did you get an EIN? go to the IRS website and get an EIN. put that on the W9 with the name of your entity and its address. for now, you’re a single member LLC, and a disregarded entity [you file a schedule C]if you decide to be something else, then you’ll have to file a change of entity form with the IRS.
