    They are asking you which tax format you want to use. LLC’s can be taxed as c corps, s corps, or sole proprietors.

    Unless you have unusual circumstances, the general advice is to elect “s-Corp”. It is the most flexible without being cumbersome..

    You're required to file forms with the IRS for an S Corporation. It's not just simply checking off the election box.

    Would probably help if you talked to an accountant for an hour or so to get it in the correct order if you want to go the S Corp route.

    There's a plethora of info regarding this on the Interwebs.
