The Limited Liability Company, or LLC, is a business structure that combines the advantages of many traditional business forms. An LLC enjoys the same type of limited liability as a corporation, but like the sole proprietorship and partnership, it is not taxed as its own entity. LLC's, like corporations, can also have as many shareholders, or members, as desired. The LLC, however, is dissolved if one of those members files for bankruptcy or dies. Limited liability has historically been a primary goal of many business forms, but since the legislature authorized it in Wyoming, the modern LLC has become increasingly popular.

These laws should certainly help you decide whether to organize as an LLC. The business structure that is appropriate for your business may take some effort to find, but finding the right business form can reward you with increased profitability.
