Two key benefits offered by LLCs and S corps. are limited liability and “pass-through” taxation. Limited liability means that owners generally are not personally liable for the debts and liabilities of the business. “Pass-through” taxation allows these business entities to avoid double taxation—neither LLCs nor S corps. pay corporate-level taxes. Instead, all profits and losses are passed through to the business owners and applicable taxes are paid on their individual returns.
