LLCs electing S-Corp Status

Great for founders who want the flexibility of an LLC with the tax benefits of an S-Corporation.

What is a S-Corporation?

Tax Status

S-Corps allow companies to divide income between dividends and personal income.

Tax Savings

Dividends are taxed at a much lower rate than personal income. With a pure LLC, you are taxed only on personal income.

Difference of S-Corp vs. C-Corp

S-Corps have more restrictions on # of shareholders, who can be a shareholder, and how many types of stock you can offer.

Venture Capital/Stock Market

Most venture-backed companies/public companies are C-Corporations due to the stock restrictions of S-Corporations.


Why combine a LLC + S-Corp?

Flexibility of a LLC

LLCs are less complicated to set up and maintain than corporations.

Tax Savings of S-Corp

LLCs can elect any tax status (sole proprietor, C-Corp, S-Corp). By electing S-Corp tax status, LLCs can split their taxable income into dividends and personal income. Dividends are taxed at a lower rate.

Federal and State Impact

Most states respect the federal S-Corp election and this leads to less state income tax for the business.


What are the drawbacks?

Stockholder Restrictions

No foreign investors. Limit of 100 stockholders. Only 1 class of stock (rules out Venture Capital investors).

Complicated Accounting

The IRS has more rigorous auditing of S-Corp elections and requires more robust accounting.

60 Month Lock

Once you elect S-Corp status, you are locked into that election for 60 months.
