What is the best State to incorporate import business? I

what is the best State to incorporate for a import business? I want to import from China and sell products in California where I live. I want all of the benefits that come with having an entity. In the past I've had LP's with LLC's as 1% general partner, Nevada or Texas registered. I even owned a property with an LLP at one time. I want to be judgement proof while having the lowest tax rate possible, and lowest maintenance costs. I am open to out of the box solutions, transferring costs, etc. I want to know the cheapest way to set it up, assuming it's "boilerplate."

I have a small home health company that contracts with

Hello. I have a small home health company that contracts with larger Medicare agencies to provide physical therapy services for their patients in their homes. They send the patient to me, and I use my own contracted therapists to carry out the services. I then invoice the Medicare company and they pay me directly (from which proceeds I pay my therapists). I was notified by one of my therapists that a particular Medicare company customer we have has been contacting them directly to try and contract with them, instead of using the services of my company. I guess they figure they can pay the therapist less than they are paying me. These therapists are my employees, and I have spent the money in recruiting and training them. I want to rewrite my contracts to prevent the companies from going straight to my therapists for service and undermining my business. What language could I enter in to my contract to make it clear that this type of activity is prohibited and could result in a lawsuit? Thanks.

I am an active CPA in the state of Georgia planning to start

I am an active CPA in the state of Georgia planning to start a basic bookkepping and accounting firm, i.e. a CPA Firm that would not provide audit or attestation services. There will only be two employees, including myself. In GA, LLPs are not a formation option, instead there is LLLP or LLC. We will have a client in California and would need to register there as well. Do you have any suggestion for what would be the best business structure in this scenario from a tax and liability perspective?

I am filing an answer to a cross complaint that was

Hello. I am filing an answer to a cross complaint that was filed by an insurance company in Orange County Ca. Essentially the contractor who was doing business for me closed, and now the insurance/bond company turned it over to the courts to determine how the bond will be distributed. I had an attorney review the lawsuit and write me the "cross defendant answer to cross-complaint." I am now having to efile my answer and eserve it as well per the courts request. The problem I have is on the last page of the answer, my attorney left a section that states,"CERTIFICATE OF SERVICEI hereby certify that a copy of the foregoingwas served on the below-identified attorneysof record via 1st Class Mail on the___ day of May, 2015:Carlos E.

I have a company filing and doing the eservice for me, but they said they can't tell me if that's okay to change....
