Regarded Entity

Definition:

An entity recognized for US tax purposes.

Example:  An LLC owned by one person can elect (for US tax purposes) to disregard the LLC and recognize the individual owner as the regarded owner. For all other purposes, the LLC would be regarded as an entity. Alternatively, the LLC can elect to be regarded as an entity itself (a corporation) and recognized for US tax purposes as a corporation.
