Welcome to Just Answer. I am here to help you resolve your tax and finance concerns. Please feel free to ask anytime you need extra help.


One of the intricacies of this which I will need to be able to properly assist you is the legal structure of the business (LLC, C Corp, S Corp, partnership). The concern there is that in most cases you will be better off starting a new entity in the state you chose for your relocation. If you presently have a CA entity other states will tax it as a foreign (meaning not from that state) entity. This usually results in higher taxes.


PA is a less costly state than CA but favors the LLC structure over corporations in its taxing and formation costs. NY is also less costly for small business taxes than CA and favors the corporate structure for tax and formation costs.


If you provide additional information about the business (type of business and its legal structure) I will be able to further assist you.
