Originating in Wyoming in 1977 and spreading thereafter to all fifty states, including to Tennessee in 1994, the limited liability company (LLC) has become the most popular form of entity for newly created businesses in the United States. Particularly since the IRS’s adoption of “check the box” regulations twenty years ago, entrepreneurs are drawn to the LLC due to its flexibility. State LLC Acts, including Tennessee’s, contain primarily default provisions and very few regulatory provisions.
