Changing From an LLC to a C-Corp

October 25, 2018

A writer on a forum recently asked me how you change from an LLC to an C-Corp. (Which is just a corporation that is taxed as a corporation and hasn’t elected, under the tax code, to be taxed as an “S” Corporation).

And companies are going to have to do it to comply (with resentment) rather than for seeing it to be the right thing to do.Read the rest
