Owners of an LLC are called members. Most states do not restrict ownership, and so members may include individuals, corporations, other LLCs and foreign entities. There is no maximum number of members. Most states also permit single-member LLCs, those having only one owner.
Single Member Limited Liability Companies
A domestic LLC with at least two members is classified as a partnership for federal income tax purposes unless it files Form 8832 and affirmatively elects to be treated as a corporation. And an LLC with only one member is treated as an entity disregarded as separate from its owner for income tax purposes (but as a separate entity for purposes of employment tax and certain excise taxes), unless it files Form 8832 and affirmatively elects to be treated as a corporation.
Activities should be reflected on its owner's federal tax return. If the owner is an individual, the activities of the LLC will generally be reflected on:
Form 2553 - Election by a Small Business Corporation
A corporation or other entity eligible to be treated as a corporation files this form to make an election under section 1362(a) to be an S corporation.
