Interested in establishing my film production company as an

Interested in establishing my film production company as an LLC, but unsure where to register it as I live in two states: California and Maryland. For tax purposes, I've been doing research into registering in Wyoming, especially since 95% of my business is performed online (I'm a creative producer, so the bulk of my work is writing on a laptop, as opposed to on an actual film set), so I'm really not "doing intrastate business"; I'm working from home, from my computer. Am I right that a Wyoming-based LLC is a viable option for me, or no?JA: Can you tell me what state the LLC is registered in?Customer: It's not registered anywhere yet. That's what I'm trying to determine...if it's a good idea to set it up in Wyoming, for the tax breaks, or not. Thanks!JA: Has anything been officially filed? If so, what?Customer: No, nothing at all. All I have is the business name, but if hasn't been registered anywhere.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: IT hasn't been registered anywhere...

I opened a limited company but decided not to trade with it.

I opened a limited company but decided not to trade with it. It therefore has no profit or loss record. If I close it, will it have an adverse effect on my creditworthiness with lenders in the future?

I have an LLC formed Nov 2012 with operating agreement that

I have an LLC formed Nov 2012 with operating agreement that allows member withdrawal. Is a withdrawal considered a transfer? Member XXX wants to withdraw with no compensation but we signed the following (as a provision of a divorce agreement). I am trying to get out of the following agreement provision, how can I get out of this?Sale or Transfer of Business Interest. XXX will not sell, transfer or encumber all or any portion of his interest in the LLC (or its successor) without YYY's prior written consent, which consent will not be unreasonably withheld or delayed. At least thirty (30) days prior to any proposed sale or transfer, XXX will provide YYY in writing the name of the proposed purchaser or transferee and the terms of the proposed sale or transfer in sufficient detail so that YYY can evaluate the proposed transaction. YYY consent will not be considered unreasonably withheld if (i) XXX is in default of his obligations under this Agreement at the time the request for consent is made; (ii) the proposed transaction or purchaser is not bona fide; (iii) XXX fails to provide YYY with reasonably sufficient information to value the subject LLC interest; (iv) consideration for the sale or transfer is less than the full fair market value of subject LLC interest; or (v) adequate provision is not made for YYY to receive ten percent share of XXX's proceeds from the transaction. The reasons to withhold consent in the foregoing sentence are not exclusive; YYY may also base the withholding of her consent to a proposed sale, transfer, or encumbrance on any other reasonable grounds.

I just had a lawsuit dismissed against me on a summary

I just had a lawsuit dismissed against me on a summary judgment. Within the lawsuit was a preliminary injunction depriving me of property rights. Language in the PI provided that the plaintiffs post a 250K bond that entitles me to cost reimbursement if I won the case or it was dismissed. I am working on the prove to get compensatory damages to collect on the bond pursuant to a motion under NY CPLR 6315. The court where the litigation was filed is 3 hours away and I had made complaints against the judge and the court jurisdiction for judicial misconduct and collusion with plaintiffs. I feel its impossible for the judge and any judge in that jurisdiction to be fair and objective. I want to change the venue, are these valid reason? how would I go about this?

Jurisdiction We have had a complaint filed on our business

JurisdictionWe have had a complaint filed on our business and personally from a building supply company we owe money to.The complaint was filed in Wayne County.Materials were bought Hertford NC (not in Wayne County).The main office of the building supply company is in Richmond VA. There are no locations in Wayne County. And payments are due at the branches or to Richmond VA address.Our residence, main business, where the materials were delivered, place of business, etc etc, is in Dare County NC.We have have nothing to do with Wayne County, never even been there.The only thing that is in Wayne County is the Lawyer for the building supply company.The contract states: jurisdiction in any city or county in which merchandise was purchased, where merchandise was delivered or used, or where payment is due.So is the Lawyer being in Wayne County sufficient to file in Wayne County? Or a collection agency being in Wayne County?Thank you, Kelly

I have an Ohio Sales Tax question. I am having my car

I have an Ohio Sales Tax question. I am having my car repaired at a body shop that is located in a different county (Geauga) than where I live (Cuyahoga). The sales tax in Geauga county is only 6.75% vs. the sales tax where I live of 8%. This is an expensive repair and body work will be easily over $1,000. I noticed the body shop quoted only 6.75% for the sales tax. Is this correct and all I would have to pay is 6.75%? Or would I then owe the balance of the sales tax to Ohio because I live in a higher sales tax area? If so, how would I pay this? Thanks for your help.
