Tax Reporting For Nonresident Alien LLC Members
A limited liability company (LLC) is a popular choice of entity for conducting business or holding rental real estate in the United States. It is a business structure that you, as a nonresident alien of the US, can legally form. It can be formed in any one of the fifty states.
An LLC is designed to protect the personal assets of its owners, similar to a corporation, but you have flexibility in how your business or rental activities are reported for tax purposes. It can also be used to hold personal use assets, such as a vacation residence.
