One of the noticeable differences between LLC and S Corp is the employment tax. As the LLC owner is considered to be self-employed, he will have to pay employment tax, which goes to Medicare and social security. While calculating the employment tax in LLC, the entire net income is taken into account.Why you might choose s Corp taxation for your LLC?
As we mentioned, one of the advantages of an LLC filing as S Corp is that you can pay profits out to owners as distributions. These distributions aren't subject to employment taxes, like Social Security or unemployment insurance tax. Only the owner's employee wages are subject to payroll taxes.Is S Corp single member LLC?
There is, however, one way for an LLC to own stock in an S corp. A single member LLC, taxed as a sole proprietorship, is called a "disregarded entity" by the IRS. Treated like an unincorporated individual, this LLC could own stock in an S corp and receive profits in relation to its ownership percentage.
