This popular handbook will teach you what you need to know to advise clients on using LLCs and LLPs in Wisconsin. The revised handbook reflects new developments such as the default pass-through tax treatment of LLCs and LLPs under the "check-the-box" regulations, the authorization of single-member LLCs (SMLLCs), and the rule permitting Wisconsin attorneys to use LLCs and LLPs in their practices. In addition, you'll find detailed discussions of the choice of an appropriate business entity, organization of the business, business formalities, and operational and tax issues.
An entire chapter of the handbook is devoted to annotated forms, including three operating agreements for LLCs, member agreements for SMLLCs, and a partnership agreement for an LLP.
The book includes a CD with the complete set of forms available in Microsoft® Word or WordPerfect® format. They’re completely adaptable, so you can customize them to fit your needs.
