What is an LLC?

An LLC is a form of business organization created under state law. The basic organizational document of an LLC is an "operating agreement." The operating agreement is simply a contract between the owners of the business that describes how the business will be operated and how the owners will share in the profits generated by the business. With very few exceptions, the law permits the owners to structure their relationship in any way they wish.
