Lansing, MI asked in Business Formation, Tax Law and Real Estate Law for Michigan

Q: I formed one-member-LLC for a 6 units-house, where I also live. Do I have to register my LLC for Michigan state tax?

One website says "Register Your LLC for Michigan State Tax" but when I visited Michigan Unemployment Insurance Agency website, it says I am liable to pay Michigan Unemployment Taxes if my LLC "Has one or more employees in 20 different weeks within a calendar year" Am I myself considered a employee so that I have to pay Michigan Unemployment Taxes? Thank you for any of your feedback in advance.

A: If you are paying employees under your limited liability company, you will have to pay withholding taxes unless - state and federal taxes. Yes you need to register with the state. Your accountant can assist you with your paperwork and tax filings.
