Professionals in the state of Texas who are licensed by the State of Texas to perform their professional services, may form Professional Limited Liability Companies.
Professional Limited Liability Companies are entity structures reserved for those individuals meeting certain criteria in Texas. Specifically, PLLCs may only be formed by those individuals fully qualified as “an individual who is licensed to provide by this state or another jurisdiction the same professional service as is rendered by that professional entity.”
This is, frankly, a broad definition but at the same time specifically limited. Simply put, if your profession requires, as part of the prerequisites to providing your services in the state of Texas, a license issued by the State of Texas, then you may form a Professional Limited Liability Company. This includes: architects, attorneys, podiatrists, physicians, CPAs, veterinarians, dentists, etc.
