What is the difference between a TTC and a LLC??

S-Corporation status is a good option for many small businesses. For qualified owners of a domestic small business, the S-Corporation status provides liability protection to each owner similar to the C-Corporation. However, with the S-Corporation owners can also take advantage of "pass-through taxation". Because the S-Corporation is considered a "pass-through entity" by the IRS, the business itself isn't taxed at the corporate level.

What is an EIN?

An Employer Identification Number (EIN) commonly referred to as a Tax ID Number, is a unique number assigned by the IRS to identify a business entity. Whether operating as a sole-proprietor, LLC or a corporation, every new business should obtain an EIN.
