How Do I File My LLC Business Taxes for the First Time
If you’re a small business owner who has recently formed an LLC, you’re probably wondering how to file your taxes for the first time. Here’s what you need to know. First of all, you’ll need to file a Schedule C with your 1040 tax form. This will report your LLC’s income and expenses. You’ll also need to pay self-employment taxes on your net profit; fortunately, the IRS offers several ways to do this. Now if you’re at a net loss, you will not owe self-employment taxes. Finally, make sure you keep good records of your business income and expenses throughout the year, so you can accurately report them on your tax return and not miss out on any opportunities. By following these tips, filing your LLC taxes for the first time will be a lot less complicated!
Now let me break this all done in greater detail. So one of the first things you need to do is obtain a tax identification number for your LLC if you haven’t already done so. This can be done by filing Form SS-04 with the IRS.

-The name and address of your LLC
-Your federal tax ID number
-The total amount of income earned by your LLC during the year
