It is far too common for entrepreneurs to form a limited liability company to conduct their business. A popular misconception is that limited liability companies provide their owners with the most asset and liability protection – which is not always the case. There are a variety of corporate structures to consider, each with its own set of benefits, protections, and shortcomings. What corporate structure is suitable for your corporation? A Close Corporation? What about a Series LLC? How does business entity selection affect your tax liability? This Webinar will take a deeper look into the various corporate structures with a special focus on the tax advantages and disadvantages of each.
The learning objectives for this course are:
- Understand the different types of business entities and their tax advantages.

In the second hour, Roman Basi will discuss the latest tax laws and updates for Real Estate called: A Price to Pay for the American Dream: Real Estate Taxes.
Traditionally, part of the American dream is to own a home; something out in the country with white picket fences or maybe a townhouse with the prettiest flower garden in the town – maybe you dream big and are aiming for the three-story mansion with a tennis court and an in-ground pool. Any way it goes, that house will probably come with a real estate tax bill. That being said, for residential and investment properties, strategies are written into the law to help minimize real estate taxes. This presentation will discuss real estate tax laws, highlighting several key helpful provisions for any property owner.
