Legal Answers
18 Questions Answered

Q. Hello, so so to make a long story short. A few months ago I bought a business (restaurant) and it’s a 3 man partnership.
A: The governance of LLCs is determined only partially by state law, but primarily by the LLC Operating Agreement which hopefully your LLC has and hopefully you signed. That agreement should detail both the responsibilities and duties of the officers as well as the options and requirement for withdrawing from the LLC (selling your Member Interests). Without reviewing your LLC Operating Agreement, no one can answer this question definitively. But I would be very surprised if your Operating Agreement permits you to sell your Member Interest to anyone at any time without the consent of your partners in the LLC.
Q. What’s the best way to save money on taxes when trying to form an llc or Corp with personal 1099?
A: So long as your corporation is an S Corp, there is no real practical difference with respect to taxes between that and an LLC. The profits and losses of the business flow through to your personal tax return in either instance. But there might be other considerations which favor one form of entity over another. For sure, it is more expensive to form an LLC in New York State because of the publication requirement, which does not apply to other business entity forms.
Q. Is an accepted offer on a house binding in the state of NY
A: Your real estate agent told you correctly. There is no contract for the sale of real estate in the state of New York unless and until the seller signs the contract, and in addition, the signed contract must actually be delivered back to the purchaser or to the purchaser’s lawyer.
