I'm excited to say that I have taken my I.M career full time and will be registering an LLC at the beginning of Jan. to help make my life easier with my ventures. I will be using this thread here to register: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...dvice/317443-cheapest-way-start-your-llc.html But I'm not an accountant, took 2 years of it in school so I know the lingo but am not an expert. Here is what I want to do and would like your advice on the subject. I live in the US, (MN) and want to register with Delaware after reading some articles, mainly the fees are cheaper then my home state. My Business: Affiliate marketer, so I don't have employees, I don't freelance and I don't have a physical address (i.e office). I simply collect commissions from sales that my sites generate. Questions: If I register my LLC in another state will I still have to pay my local state taxes too? Is it really worth registering the LLC out of state as far as tax breaks/cuts go or is it better to keep everything streamlined by keeping everything local? Once the LLC is registered: I will be taking money from my personal bank account and putting it into my business account to meet the minimum balance my bank demands to keep the account open. Should I wait until I make the minimum amount of money under my LLC tax ID number then transfer it to the business account? I just don't know if it will create a problem by using my "personal" money in the business account when it comes to tax time. Maybe I'm over thinking this though. Thanks for taking the time to help me out. I'm not against talking with an accountant or anything, but it just seems that this is a simple process once I have these answers.
