Here's a Seller's Permit Example for the State of UT: Form LLC Tactical Equipment

Davis County Clearfield Online Sales Clearfield, 84015 I will not hire any contractors or employees. Clearfield, 7/2/2014 3:57 PM . Online Sales Form LLC Tactical Equipment
Set up an LLC here for $50 plus state fees. It is a preferable ownership structure because of its flexibility in % in ownership and corporate formalities, i.e., there are no corporate minutes to hold unless you treat the LLC as a "C" corporation.
All LLCs, including those formed before 2018, will need to obtain an EIN after formation, and to do so will need to designate a Responsible Person and keep track of members and LLCs financial transactions and are required to file Form 5472.
Also, if one foreign person owns more than one disregarded LLC, each LLC will report individually the transactions.
Form 5472 is an Information return for tax purposes, and as such is not publicly available. After an LLC is dissolved/canceled/liquidated, it must file a final Form 5472, including any distribution of assets to its sole member.
If the LLC changes status by electing to be treated as a corporation, or adding members and thereby becoming a partnership, it still must file a final Form 5472.
In more than 90% of setting up a business and selecting an ownership structure from sole proprietor, LLC, or Partneship, forming an LLC (Limited Liability Co.) is better than filing a DBA or setting up an S Corporation because an LLC protects both your personal and the LLC assets. E.g., In the unfortunate case where Michae is sued for an LLC business wrong, a judgement creditor cannot seize Michaels personal assets nor the LLC assets. Also, because an LLC does not require formalities such as keeping minutes, an LLC is better than a C or S corporation for small starting businesses.
