Limited liability companies (LLC)

A hybrid form of business organization with certain features like a corporation and others like a limited partnership is the limited liability Company, or “LLC”. An LLC usually has a limited life. The owners, called members, have limited liability like owners of a corporation. Whereas limited partners do not actively participate in the management of a limited partnership (LP), the members of a limited liability company (LLC) can assume an active management role. For income tax purposes, the IRS usually classifies an LLC as a partnership.
