Hello I am a licensed attorney here to help you with your question, please review my response and do not hesitate to ask for clarification
If location is not important, States such as Nevada and Wyoming are the best States to run a business, as the State laws are corporation friendly, and both have no States tax.
Seven states (Alaska, Florida, Nevada, South Dakota, Texas, Washington, and Wyoming) do not tax personal income.
What about Delaware please
Deleware is known for it's strong corporate laws, and is a good place to create or incorporate your business, however they have a State income tax, and is not known for it's business friendly climate, compared to the others.
Many US corporations have incorporated in Deleware, and maintain the head office their.
the thing is those states you listed are too far from airports i prefer
Where would you ship from?
My favorite airpots are: Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, Washington
actually the only matching I see is Washington
but cost of business is going to be high there I believe
That is Washington State,
oh Washington state
Nevada may be fine as it is close to CA,
Yes, from the list you have it's the closest than
but it's still a way far... 10h to drive
Deleware, actually would be good for you as well,
I already have a Delaware company
but no employs, no operation, nothing yet.
The rents are cheaper than other cities in the mid atlantic
I have an EIN and Corporate bank account in NY
since i'll be hiring ppl and renting warehouse, also getting license of operations etc...
I don't want to be in troubles really, this is going to be my first US Company and a real operation
that's the reason I do the further research like that
In addition with the best location for this kind of business
Around NYC, their are several areas to choose, but rents and costs of business are high
NJ, may be good for you their rents are much lower than NY, and you are near Newark airport
you said Delaware is ok
Ye Del, is fine as well it has cheap rent for space and only a few hours from DC, NYC, and Philadelphia
200 mil to those Airports are OK to me, so Delaware to Washington D.C. and New York is acceptable
but what's the problem with it than
you didn't list it from the beginning
It has a state income tax, unlike the ones listed above
but it's only $250 or so per year
is that the only downside you see?
Delaware's corporate tax structure consists of a flat rate of 8.7% on all corporate income. Among states levying corporate income taxes, Delaware's rate ranks 10th highest. In 2009, state-level corporate tax collections (excluding local taxes) were $237 per capita, ranking 6th highest among states that tax corporate income.
And they have income tax
Deleware is fine, if you want to be near major US cities, and airports and want to save on rent, wages and taxes
but i'm an international, does that makes any difference in terms of taxes
and is Delaware a friendly to business for operation license requirements
yes, Deleware is fine for International corporations, and for what you are looking for it is better than the other area states
