House Cleaning Business Forms for Taxes, Business Entities, and Operations

House cleaning business forms can refer to many different kinds of forms. We’ve cataloged a few to help you in your search.

Tax forms for cleaning businesses

There are many types of tax forms for cleaning businesses. We’ll address a few of the common ones.

General warning: Taxes are complex, and we’re not tax attorneys, so please use our advice as a starting point for more research on your taxes.

Sole Proprietor

Sole proprietorships often use form 1040 to file federal taxes. The IRS has a helpful page set up specifically catered to sole proprietorships, to help small businesses determine the type of form needed for differing business entities.

Here’s how the IRS defines a sole proprietorship

A sole proprietor is someone who owns an unincorporated business by himself or herself. However, if you are the sole member of a domestic limited liability company (LLC), you are not a sole proprietor if you elect to treat the LLC as a corporation.

You also might need a Schedule C form, profit or loss from a business. You can read more on the IRS website to determine if this is something you need for your business.

Limited Liability Company

A limited liability company (LLC) is another common way that cleaning businesses are structured. If you’re looking for LLC tax forms, you’ll need to check out the IRS page on LLCs.

Here’s what the IRS says about filing taxes as an LLC

Depending on elections made by the LLC and the number of members, the IRS will treat an LLC as either a corporation, partnership, or as part of the LLC’s owner’s tax return (a “disregarded entity”). Specifically, a domestic LLC with at least two members is classified as a partnership for federal income tax purposes unless it files Form 8832 and affirmatively elects to be treated as a corporation. For income tax purposes, an LLC with only one member is treated as an entity disregarded as separate from its owner, unless it files Form 8832 and elects to be treated as a corporation. However, for purposes of employment tax and certain excise taxes, an LLC with only one member is still considered a separate entity.

LLCs are chartered by state governments, so it’s important to look up the rules for your individual state to make sure you don’t miss any tax rules your home state imposes on LLCs.

Forms for creating business entities

Sole Proprietorship

There’s no paperwork necessary to create a sole proprietorship business structure – but that doesn’t mean that you won’t have state-level tax forms and licenses to complete or that your local municipality doesn’t have a license to operate a business in the city limits.

Since these rules are different state by state and city by city, you’ll need to check out your state and city regulations for owning a business.


LLC’s are chartered by states, so you’ll need to look up the secretary of state website in your home state to see about applicable laws and statutes.
