Single Member LLC was a single member LLC from 1/1/16-8/29/16.
On 8/30/16, a new member was added. The employer id number did not change.
Do we file one Form 568 for 2016?
yes you file a 568 for the single member LLC period and pay the $800 plus any fee for the short period. Then you flle a second 568 for the multi member period and pay the $800 and the fee for that period.
Thanks-can you efile both the short period single member LLC CA return and also efile the mult- member period return?
Good question. I would guess not as the LLC number can't be used twice. I would paper file
Thanks so much for your prompt reply. They used Legalzoom to file the LLC-12 to add the new member. The Form LLC-12 is dated 8/30/16 by Legalzoom. Does that mean the short period is 1/1/16-8/30/16? In other words, how do I know what date range to use for the single-member llc return?
