Hi, my name is Jon and I'm an independent investor in Kansas City, and I'm here today to talk to you about what is a limited liability company for About.com. A limited liability company also known as an LLC., is a type of business structure that combines traits of both a sole proprietorship, a single owner and a corporation. An LLC is eligible for the pass through taxation feature of a partnership or a sole proprietorship, which at the same time limiting the liability of of the owners similar to a corporation. As the LLC. is not considered a separate entity the company does not pay taxes or take on losses.
