Question

I am the sole owner of an LLC and I have a question regarding my LLC tax filing. I include my LLC income and expenses on my Schedule C. In doing so, do I still need to file a separate LLC tax return?

Answer

No, you do not need a separate LLC tax filing or return. Because LLCs are registered with the states they do not require federal returns. So, unless the LLC chooses to be treated as a corporation:

  • A single-member LLC should file Form Schedule C.
  • A multimember LLCs should file Form 1065.

Your state might require a separate LLC tax return, please check with your state tax office to find out.
