Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
What are your plans? Single member LLC or do you plan to incorporate?
If you are single member LLC (you will not be the employee but the business owner), you will be taxed as solo proprietor in your home state. You can have clients across the US but if you don't physically work in those states you will not need to file returns in those states.
If you incorporate (corporation or scorp) you will become employee of your own corporation which means payroll, payroll returns and separate business return in addition to your personal return. You will be taxed in the state you incorporate (business profits) and in state you physically work (wages).
If you don't necessary want the corporate perks like 401K, subsidized health insurance or stock option, single member LLC is easier to run.
A single member LLC is disregarded entity for tax purposes, which means the LLC itself doesn't pay any taxes. The profit/loss is reported on Schedule C and than directly on your 1040. You do not need to incorporate to hire employees but you will need to apply for EIN.
Nevada or Wyoming may not have any income tax but the states charge annual registration and license fees and you would most likely not have any corporate profit anyway if you pay yourself salary that would be taxed in your home state. Most small corporation do not have a lot of profit since most of the revenue is deducted as wages to the owners.

I do not have any control over the billing but from what I know is that the $5 is a deposit. One you receive the answer the remaining is charged to the CC I am assuming as a refundable deposit as well because until you accept my answer I will not get paid anything.
