in general,.With a management company, an S-Corp election is good for reducing self-employment (SE) tax or payroll tax. An LLC filing a partnership tax return passes through self-employment income (SEI) to its owners ? triggering SE tax ? whereas an LLC with an S-Corp election does not. you can contact a tax pro , an Enrolled Agent or a CPA doing biz in your local area for professional help
