Recent State Income Tax questions

If we open an LLC for a totally online business, do we need

Hello,If we open an LLC for a totally online business, do we need to register with city or county too or just state registration for LLC is enough? I moved out of the country recently and plan to open an LLC in a suitable state, which does not matter much for me at this stage but probably a state with no personal income tax as I will be the single owner. I know i will include the income from this in my federal return, that is not my question. So I will register with that state but how about registering in the county or city level? Is it required for an online business?

I was a California resident from 2005~2010 but moved to

I was a California resident from 2005~2010 but moved to Hawaii in 2011 and eventually moved overseas in 2012 until present. I would like to argue to the tax officer (if I am ever audited) that I was in HI temporarily and my domicile is in CA (in order to take advantage of Safe Harbor rule where I stayed away from CA for an uninterrupted 546 days and allows me to avoid paying State income tax while using FEIE for Federal tax).My arguments:- I was in HI for primarily flight school and worked a full time job to support family. (I was in flight school for the last 3 months of my 12 month stay in HI.)- My intentions were never to settle in HI as my action showed.-- Sold all my belongings in HI when I left.-- Brought my spouse to Korea with me after 12 months in HI.- Never registered to vote in HI.- Registered to vote in CA.- Intention to return to CA since my child has tuition & fee reduction in CA state universities as part of my USAF benefit.HI Tax officer's potential argument:- I had a permanent full time job in HI for 12 months.- HI was the last state where I had US Driver's license and bank account.- My parents reside in HI.- My wife purchased an investment apartment in HI.With these facts, do you think I can legally claim CA as my domicile for state income tax purpose?

I'm thinking of starting an amazon e-com business with a friend who is an UK citizen. I am an American expat without any domicile in any state. Which State is best to incorporate in, that will protect both parties the best? Nevada, Delaware, etc? The LLC structure will not fully protect a foreigner because its a pass through entity correct? Does that automatically disqualify setting up as an S corp as well? thanks
