I recommend setting up the LLC in Minnesota. The reasoning is as follows:
1.You live and will be working in Minnesota. This gives nexus (a substantial physical presence) in Minnesota.
2.Having nexus in Minnesota your entity will be required to file returns and pay taxes to Minnesota. You as a Minnesota resident will also be required to file returns and pay taxes in Minnesota.
A Nevada LLC will not change this other than to:
1.Add a second set of state returns to prepare and file.
2.Cost you a resident agent fee each year.
In simple terms, set up your business in the state in which it will really be located and operating. Additionally, I would look into the cost of a corporation as compared to an LLC. Both offer the same legal protections but, due to publication requirements (the costs vary), a corporation can be less expensive.
