Taxes are a part of life for Florida residents and the same holds true for business entities that operate in the state. Just as individuals may be taxed on their earnings, many businesses are required to report their incomes and pay taxes on their profits. However, the tax rules that a business will be held to follow will greatly depend upon the structure the business has chosen for its operations.
Different businesses may be organized in different ways and how business owners elect to structure their enterprises can have major impacts on how those entities sell shares, establish internal leadership and pay taxes. This post will discuss some of the common ways that Florida business owners may choose to structure their new business entities, but readers are reminded that this post is not comprehensive nor does it offer any legal advice.
