If I owe the IRS, what do I need to do if
I don’t have the money to pay the taxes

 If you don't have the total amount of your debt, perhaps, you could get a payment plan with the IRS.

A payment plant could be a good option. A payment plan allows you to pay your debt on terms.

The administrative fee of $105 for the agreements of a payment plant and $52 fee agreements are deduced directly from your bank account.
If unable to make the payments on time for any reason, you should communicate with the IRS as soon as possible, failure to do so could cause the annulment of the agreement.

If you are waiting a refund and your debt to the IRS is bigger than your refund, IRS will automatically apply the refund to the owing taxes.

What is an LLC?

A LLC is that: an association form. Their long name is Limited Liability Company:

A Limited Liability Company (LLC) is a business structure allowed by state statute. LLCs are popular because, similar to a corporation, owners have limited personal liability for the debts and actions of the LLC. Other features of LLCs are more like a partnership, providing management flexibility and the benefit of pass-through taxation.

Owners of an LLC are called members. Since most states do not restrict ownership, members may include individuals, corporations, other LLCs and foreign entities. There is no maximum number of members. Most states also permit “single member” LLCs, those having only one owner.

Sometimes LLC are used as mechanism of fiscal evasion. That is not their intent: the idea is to facilitate things to the owners, not to hide revenues. As instrument for corporation growth a LLC can be a very good solution.
