Ten Outstanding Minnesotans, Minnesota Jaycees

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

An LLC can be taxed as a partnership, corporation, or even an S Corp. Most people don't realize that an LLC can be taxed as an S Corp. For this reason, an LLC is becoming a highly preferable business type for small businesses that desire to be taxed as an S Corp.

Something controversial or provocative about this subject

Even though someone may be right under the law, the legal fees required to enforce that right may preclude that person from enjoying that right. For example, if someone owes you $200, you might never recover that money because it would cost more than $200 to hire an attorney to recover the money.
