I own a LLC that leases rental properties to tenants. I am the registered agent and own the properties in my name. When I started the llc the plan was to move those VA loans under the business umbrella, but I was unable to do that. I would still like to conduct business under the LLC's name with the understanding that I could still be sued. Is there anything illegal about my LLC being the face for the renting my properties?

I am planning to register a start up company to resell some

I am planning to register a start up company to resell some American merchandise to China. And I am wondering how can I avoid the TAX as much as I can. I searched online and find something called Oversea (BVI or cayman islands) Two-level Structure and Price Transfer, as Apple Inc. applied. But I think I need much more details to make it 100% legal. Could you please tell me more about the Avoid Tax oversea and walk me step by step to register the company with the two-level structure. Thank you very much.

Three days ago, I wrote a check to transfer my money from

Three days ago, I wrote a check to transfer my money from Bank A's checking account to Bank B's checking account. Both banks are big national banks. Yesterday I was informed by a email from Bank B's fraud prevention department that my deposit is placed on hold for 7 days and will be subjected to further review after that. I am an established costumer of both banks and my deposit with Bank A is legitimate. Does any bank has the power(from banking law and/or special government decree) to seize customer's deposit any time it sees fit? What should be my recourse right now? The only thing unusual I can think of this money transfer is the amount is little bit larger than usual.

D.C. civil proceedure. I received a discovery motion to compell response to interrogatories. I believe according to D.C. Rules of Civil proceedure the opposing counsel and I must meet "face to face" He threw out some dates and i responded with different dates but there was no response from opposing counsel. In addition, I want to take the deposition of two of his witnesses but at first he said that they would be available and a week. I asked him for dates he didnt reply. He finally replied that he had to check his schedule. At this point I'm wondering whether or not to just formally set up the deposition without his say so. . In addition, should i file a motion to dismiss his motion to compell or should I respond to this motion and lead off by saying that it should be dismissed.
