How do I compute California LLC fees for subsidiaries?

Mr. Gray:

Thank you over the years for your great newsletters. They have proved an invaluable source of information.

I'm computing the California fee for an LLC. I have two California LLCs owned by a third managing LLC. The gross receipts for the two subs are a total of $1.1 million. The managing LLC is only reporting the net income of the two subs. This creates the highest fee of $6,000 based on the attribution of the two subs gross receipts.

Isn't that double taxation of the gross receipts for the two subs?

Thank you for your help if you can provide the same.

Hello Thomas,

See the Limited Liability Company Income Worksheet. You subtract the amounts already subject to the LLC fee at line 3.d.

Good luck!
