Register as a Disregarded Entity in Zenefits
To register as a "disregarded entity", a single-owner LLC taxed as an S-Corp, choose a Sole Proprietorship option in the Type list when onboarding to Zenefits to correctly fill out the W-9.
The IRS considers any LLC with a single owner to be a "disregarded entity" (not considered separate from the owner). For tax purposes, the owner and the LLC are the same entity, so the owner will declare the profit, loss, and deductions on their personal return. LLCs can be taxed as an S-Corp, but if there's only one owner, it should be a disregarded entity.
If registering as a disregarded entity, enter an SSN, not the LLC's EIN.
