With so many different tax entities available to file under in the US it can be difficult to know what advantages/limits/disadvantages exist with each method. Here is a quick outline on the differences between the major business designations available to taxpayers: LLC, C Corp and S Corp

How Formations helped me?

I joined Formations to get their help with bookkeeping. I got an exceptional service that worth much more!


    • Opened an LLC
    • Formed an S-Corp 
    • Tax filing 
    • Keeping my business compliant with the IRS 
    • Bookkeeping 
    • Processing payroll 
    • Monthly reconciliation of my finances. 
    • Full customer support and access to experts any time with my bookkeeping, taxes, and accounting 

Before joining Formations I had a challenge with the monthly accounting. Since I’ve opened my business four years ago, I did my own bookkeeping, not well I should say. Now Formations is tied to my account, all my expenses are categorized every month and I don’t have to think about it. 

Getting Onboard with Formations

As a real estate professional with a busy schedule, I could find myself struggling with doing my bookkeeping and taxes. I’m not an accountant, I don’t understand tax law and I do prefer to invest time in my passion, working with my clients. I was looking for a solution that would take away the burden of managing the financial part of my business. That includes doing all the paperwork, taxes, and keeping track of my expendituresI can already tell that the monthly accounting was a huge help. I am looking forward to tax season when I can get some advice on how to minimize my taxes by putting money in retirement, putting my kids on the payroll, and other options. By listening to one of Formations seminars I could understand the reason behind using the S-corp tax structure for my business 

I joined one of the Formations webinars explaining why a business like mine should become an S-corp. Shahar sounds like he really knows what he’s doing and he loves what he’s doing. Formations goal is not just to do my taxes, it’s to increase my net worth at the end of the day.
