The taxing question of LLC contributions

October 3, 2017

The Commission often receives questions about whether federal campaigns can accept contributions from limited liability companies (LLCs).

On the other hand, LLCs that elect corporate tax treatment are considered corporations by the FEC and are prohibited from contributing to federal candidates.
