What is an Oregon LLC?
An Oregon LLC or Oregon Limited Liability Company, is a form of a business entity that combines the benefits of a corporation with the benefits of a partnership. Corporations provide limited liability to its owners/stockholders (meaning, generally, that the owners are not personally liable for the debts or obligations of the business) while partnerships provide pass-through single taxation to its owners (partners).

Benefits of Forming an LLC in Oregon (OR):
Taxes: An LLC has the flexibility to be taxed as a sole proprietor, partnership, S-corp or C-corp.
Pass-through Taxation: Typically, LLCs will choose to be taxed as a partnership to avoid double taxation, which occurs in corporations. This allows LLCs to distribute their profit among members who then report it on their personal tax returns. The LLC is not a tax payer, but often is required to file a tax return.
Limited Liability: The owners (members) of the LLC enjoy personal protection against some or all liability of the debts and obligations of the LLC.
