What is an LLC?
The Limited Liability Company, or LLC, is a legal form of business organization that offers the benefits of several other traditional structures. An LLC enjoys the same form of limited liability as a corporation, but like the sole proprietorship and partnership, it is not taxed as its own entity. Also like corporations, LLC's may have as many shareholders, or members, as it likes. Unlike a corporation however, the death or bankruptcy of one of the members will dissolve the LLC. Many business forms have traditionally been aimed at the goal of limited liability, but the LLC is the most modern of these forms, having become popular since the enactment of laws in California that authorized its formation.
