Commentary The professional limited liability company (hereinafter PLLC) is a limited liability company that is formed for the purpose of providing a professional service. A 223professional service224 means any type of service that requires, as a condition precedent to the rendering of the service, the obtaining of a license in this state, including the personal service rendered by a dentist, attorney, physician, or veterinarian. A PLLC is governed by title 1, title 3, and chapters 301 and 304 of title 7 of the Texas Business Organizations Code (BOC). Title 1, chapter 3, subchapter A of the BOC governs the formation of a PLLC and sets forth the provisions required or permitted to be contained in the certificate of formation. Title 7, chapter 301 establishes certain restrictions and requirements regarding ownership and management of a PLLC. Only a professional individual or professional organization may be an owner or manager of a PLLC. Only a professional individual may be an officer of a PLLC. A professional individual is an individual who is licensed to practice the same professional service as the PLLC. A professional organization is a person other than an individual that renders the same professional service as the PLLC only through owners, members, managerial officials, employees, or agents, each of whom is a professional individual or professional organization. Taxes: A PLLC is subject to a state franchise tax. Contact the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts, Tax Assistance Section, Austin, Texas, 78774-0100, (512) 463-4600 or (800) 252-1381 for franchise tax information.
