I currently have one DBA that was set up as sole prop. I would like to register another DBA for another business and put both businesses under an LLC. I would like to include my husband in all three, and we live a community state (TX). So, as I undersatnd, we will be able to be taxed as sole prop under the LLC because we are married, and keep things simple. But, as what entity do I register the DBAs for the two businesses under the LLC? Sole Prop? General Partnership? I want to be sure that the LLC protection is there, but I don't think I need to register the other DBAs as LLC, right? That would be another $300 for each on state fees. Does it really matter if I state on all my paperwork and websites that the businesses are run under the LLC? I guess this isn't a very common question. I can't find the info anywhere on the net. Or maybe I'm just trying to make it too complicated. Suggestions?
Best suggestion. Talk to an accountant from Tx.
Pay the accountant NOW or pay the IRS later.
Next suggestion. Talk to SCORE. SCORE is FREE
Keep it simple.
