Generally, a Dual Class LLC is a business entity, defined in state law, in which each owner (or ''member'') enjoys limited liability for the business' debts and other legal obligations, as do shareholders in a corporation. For federal income tax purposes, however, the LLC is not a taxpaying entity. Rather, the LLC is treated as a conduit, through which tax attributes, including the profit earned or the loss incurred in the LLC's business operations, flow through to the members. Thus, the Dual Class LLC is a hybrid, it is like a corporation, for state law limited liability purposes, but like a partnership for federal income tax purposes (or, in the case of single member LLCs, disregarded for federal income tax purposes). Beyond this admittedly broad and general description, there are LLC characteristics which vary from state to state. With regards to Nonresidents of the United States, it is not wise to believe the LLC is generally the best solution for your business needs, as there may be self employment taxes and estate taxes involved that could be far higher than any corporate income tax you can imagine. Every situation is different and guidance from a competent attorney is key in making such important decisions.
