    Hi friends,

    a small premise...
    I'm about to start 2 big projects: the first one is about website hosting and the second is about an ecommerce shop.
    The wholesaler for the ecommerce shop will accept orders only from US residents or US companies, and this is a problem since I live in Italy. I started some days ago to do some research about opening an LLC company as non resident and I've found several website about that but I couldn't find some answer to my questions,in particular:

    1-as an LLC company, what is the taxation?I've found a website which says that I DO NOT have to pay any tax because I'm not US citizen ( this sounds pretty weird to me...).It says also that the only fees that I have to pay are the State fees (about 200$ per year) and 350$ per year for a registered agent;
    2-how can I produce my tax declaration since I live in Italy?

    Any advice is welcome!

    I can help you get this company established over here. Have 3 attorneys i am good friends with. One works with international business law, another is a immigration lawyer, and the last one is a corporate tax lawyer. Let me kno what you are looking to do.

    You can get the company incorporated over here and you be the major share holder.you still would have to pay taxes.. Only way you can avoid paying taxes is having the products shipped from there but then again you will be paying tons of shipping fees and import taxes.

    Man, there are cheaper routes. Taxation can be made a non issue for you easily enough, on the US end, not sure how your end would work.

    First of all :Thanks you guys for reply me.

    @ scrupio: the dropshipper is in the USA,what you mean with "Only way you can avoid paying taxes is having the products shipped from there"?I really do not understand...
    second:i was thinking about to open an LLC, not a corp!because the company would be just me.Do you have MSN meseenger or Yahoo Messenger?i'd like to talk with you more about that.
    Thank you.
