Entity selection can be a critical decision for businesses. In this class we will contrast the basic business entities - Sole Proprietorships, General Partnerships, LLCs, C Corporations, and S Corporations - by looking at filing requirements, liability and taxes. We will examine the advantages and disadvantages of each entity and identify choices for different situations. Then we will look at how, and if, an entity can change its selection and become a different entity. We will compare the different entities in dissolution, and consider the tax effects of each. Finally, we will identify which changes can be made by each entity, summarize in a simple chart
