Dear CPA,

I want to convert my S. Corp. (started and registered in MN in 2003) into a Nevada LLC with the s corp. election. Although I live in MN it is an internet business, I don't really operated the business or do business in MN. 99% of the internet sales are from outside MN. I have no employees. All my subcontractors, services I use are outside MN or the USA. If I use a Nevada LLC do I have to also register with the Secretary of State in MN too and pay state incorporations fees each year?

All details explanations are very helpful and greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Mark

The easiest way would be to form a LLC in Nevada and file for S election and close your current S Corp in MN.

 

Even if the business is not carried on in MN, since you are a resident of MN and are also an employee of the S Corp- there is a business nexuss in MN and hence you will have to register the Nevada LLC as a foreign corp in MN and pay renewal fees each year to the State.

 

 

Let me know if you have any question.

I'm going to accept and pay this. However, I prefer to get questions answered from different CPAs in the future. You usually tell me what I already with misspelled words and don't add enough information I can use for the several business I own.
