  1. If I want the LLC to be taxed as a S-Corp, do I put this in the operating agreement or file separate forms with the IRS?

    • Hi Eric, you can note that your LLC will be taxed as an S-Corp in the Operating Agreement, but this doesn’t cause it to happen. The S-Corp election takes place by filing with the IRS. We have that information here: LLC taxed as an S-Corporation. Hope that helps.
