Thanks for your feedback. Actually, the sole proprietor business I am currently in is virtual administrative support consulting. I rented a virtual office space as I did not want my home address as "public record" in the event someone needed to sue. For single-member LLC purposes, I had planned on filing Form 8832 to be treated as a corporation for tax purposes.
With that being said, would my primary residence in the state of Illinois have an affect on the LLC registration and taxation? Illinois has state income tax while the state of Florida does not. I've also heard that it is better to incorporate in Delaware or Nevada due to the small business laws, but wasn't so sure.
The fees in Illinois to start a LLC is $500 versus Florida of $125.
