Business Formation

When choosing a business entity, there are several things that you should consider. The entity you choose will affect how you are taxed and how your business is managed, as well as your personal liability for business losses. Using extensive financial, legal and taxation knowledge, we help our clients evaluate the different business entities and choose the one that best fits their needs:

  • Subchapter S professional corporations
  • LLCs (limited liability companies)
  • LLPs (limited liability partnerships)

Tax Planning

IRS regulations give business entities options they may have not even thought possible. For example, an LLC may elect to be taxed like a partnership while still enjoying some of the beneficial characteristics of a corporation. At the law offices of W.
