My question involves business law in the state of: California
Hi, I forgot I own an LLC and have not file taxes since 2008. My lawyer told me not to file because the State of California cannot come after me personally for the back taxes. They can only go after the LLC. Is this true?
The LLC has only one owner and it is me. It is still an active LLC according to the state website. No transaction has been made through the LLC since the inception. I simply forgot I have own an LLC and forgot to file the taxes.
