    First that is ridiculous. She should feel harassed but I bet a good lawyer could get around that.

    Yep. I am an LLC. :-)
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    I believe there are a few extra hinks to a single member LLC, but I do know that most LLCs opt to be treated as a Partnership rather than a Corporation because the taxing basis is more favorable.

    An LLC provides some shields in the case of a liability situation.

    This is what I did and why I did it. I am a single member LLC.
