LLC or C-Corp on H4 EAD?


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone


So on H4 EAD, I plan to start some art work and not expecting any/lot of profit 6 months down the line. 


1) Single member LLC: 

Advantage: Protect against personal liability, Tax benefit

But the issue is that during tax reporting it is treated as a disregarded entity (sole prpertourship) and there are chances of getting Audit during  tax file. 



2) With multi member LLC you require atleast 2 members. I don't want to involve my spouse (who is on H1B Visa) as a member on LLC due to any visa constraint. I read that you can keep spouse (H1b holder) as a passive investor without any issue. 


3) C-Corp: Double Taxation. Everyone is suggesting to go w/ LLC..



Can anyone please suggest what is the better option (considering tax benefit, no implication on visa/green card) 




Thanks a lot!
