The simple solution would be to establish a residency in tax free state - for instance in Texas or Florida and have DE LLC which do not do any business activities neither in DE nor in your residency state.
Thanks but I am traveling.
I don't really want to pay rent somewhere if I don't live there.
It's on online website and there are clients in every single state.
That is not an issue HOW your business is organized... It may be online or any other way.
It doesn't matter where your clients are - but the matter is where (physical place) you perform services.That is a matter of your residency. If you do not want to change your residency - you will be considered NY resident - that is an issue.You might try to proof that you do not live in NY - but if they really come after you - you woudl not able to proof that - and your position will be vulnerable.So you woudl be in gray area - and might be lucky and NY taxing authorities will never know - but there is no guarantee.
So - that is a matter of your residency and a matter of your choice to establish it.
So I'm asking how I can 100% remove all my residence from NY.
I don't have a home. I am living in hotels.
The business is being done on a website, we have no physical address. Only a registered agent in DE
Will having the PO box in NY be an issue.
What about drivers licence.. I can't get one in another state because I don't have an address to change it to.
For example in California I would need to show address where i live and provide bills in my name etc. I don't have any of these.
If you do not want to change your residency - you will be considered NY resident.
In order to change your residency - you will need to establish a residency in any other state.
Otherwise - NY authorities will treat you as a resident and there is nothing you may do.
I think we discussed that issue here
that was a couple of weeks ago...

I just run into following article that might be very helpful for you to learn about possible consequences if you face so called - New York State residency audit
A New York State residency audit is used to determine whether a taxpayer who filed as a nonresident/part year resident, should have filed as a resident and paid income tax to New York on their worldwide income.
As mentioned in the article - a New York State residency audit is a document intensive process and the one of the most difficult audits.
