As we near the end of 2018 the topic of effective dates is a discussion that comes to mind in relation to the filing of new Corporations and/or new Limited Liability Companies.  Your client may have a new business venture and is looking to form a new business entity. Your first inclination may be to deter them from filing this close to the end of the year in order to avoid 2018 taxes, however in many States you can file now, setting forth a future effective date.

Filing now with an effective date of 01/01/2019 will allow you to get the paperwork organized now and your client will be able to ring in the New Year knowing that they can hit the ground running with their new business.
