If you own rental property in California you will be required to file non-resident income tax returns and pay taxes on the net income in California.
If you are required to file in Texas (I thought Texas did not have personal income tax) then you would be allowed to take a credit for any taxes paid to California on the rental income.
If you put the rental property in an LLC then you will be subject to the state tax rules for the LLC.
In California an LLC with only 1 member is ignored for income tax. So the tax consequences are the same as if you owned it not in the LLC.
I live in Texas (resident). Would like to know more specifically if the LLC is registered in Texas and the property owned by LLC is in texas, will the LLC have to pay income tax on rental income (since texas doesn't have personal income tax, I am trying to figure out if I should buy rental properties as personal or under LLC). Thx.
