What is an LLC? LLC stands for Limited Liability Company. It is a hybrid type of company that combines the corporate protections of separating corporate and personal assets and liabilities with tax advantages and other elements of partnerships and sole proprietorships. The LLC’s tax liabilities are paid at the shareholder’s personal level, so the LLC only files returns without payments. Unlike the corporation, the LLC cannot outlive its founders unless there are continuation agreements. Additionally, new shareholders can be added without corporate resolution in the LLC.
