Do I have to pay CA LLC $800 tax for 2013 if I haven't conducted business?

Los Angeles, CA |

I formed an LLC in November 2012. I have not yet conducted any business in CA. Do I have to pay the $800 tax on April 15th?

  1. Yes. The $800 is a tax on the LLC's existence.


  2. Unfortunately, yes. As long as the LLC exists, it will be liable for taxes. This is true even if the LLC did not transact any business for the year in question.
