do you know if I can open a business checking account in another state? outside of where my company is legally set up?
Thank you. Is there any way I can open a business bank account without my name on it? Or can I list only as a "signer"?
Kirk, I have more questions for you regarding the LLC. I went to set up a new LLC through Legal Zoom.
1. Do you know if Legal Zoom is legitimate?
2. One question is "who should be listed as a contact for the IRS to contact if they have questions on my LLC application or EIN #. I want to remain anonymous from the LLC so how can I provide this?
3. How should I manage taxes and employees as a pass through entity or corporation?
4. Who will the representative be that is registered with the state for PA sls tax? Again how can I avoid this as an anonymous owner?
5. Legal Zoom provides something called Registered agent. They said
this protects my anonymity. Is this true?
Legal Zoom said they can be listed as the registered agent. Should I feel comfortable with this?
Also, paperwork is sent to a specific address on file. If I list my personal address for the LLC and the business gets sued down the line is my house in danger of liens etc.
But I'm not using a po box rather my home physical mailing address.
