If you’re a physician assistant (PA), you SHOULD form a Professional Corporation taxed as an S-Corporation.
California law prohibits physician assistants (PA) from forming LLCs or traditional general corporations from their physician assistant practices. Instead, they must register as a Professional Corporation.
If done incorrectly, your Professional Corporation can be rejected by the Secretary of State, leaving you vulnerable to potential lawsuits and fines from various government agencies, and even the California State Board.
