FAQ: If I Will Do Business In California, Can I Incorporate My Business In Another State First?
Do you ask yourself “Should I incorporate my business in a state with no taxes first?” You are not alone. The truth is, if your office is located in California and you will do business in California, then you should incorporate in California. If you don’t you will have to apply to do business here. You will still have to pay the minimum $800 tax per year.
FAQ: Why Should I Incorporate My Business?
There are many times we have heard the question, “Why should I incorporate my business?” The most common reason people incorporate is for asset protection. If a corporation is sued, all it can lose is what it owns. This is because a corporation is a legal “person” (entity) that is separate from it’s owners. Owners are called stockholders or officers. Corporations file their own tax returns and pay their own taxes. The stockholders can now be employees. This lets you get a W-2 just like you would at any job.
