I will be starting an LLC with 2 other members and have the follwoing questions about where to LLC or Incorporate:
Basic outline of the organization:
2 of the partners will be residing in WI and the 3rd partner is a citizen of Mexico who resides in Mexico and that status will not change.
The physical business (trucking) to start will be operating in only in the state of Texas upon startup & a few years thereafter.
The two partners in WI will be working from home, but offering no actual business services in the state of WI.
I will be doing the traveling to Texas to get the business off the ground and operate it. I may move there in the future as the operation grows. This isn't a necesity as Trucking can grow anywhere.
Questions I have are this:
If the business is being operated physically in Texas but 2 of the owners live in WI, where should we incorporate?
If we live in WI and the business is incorporated in TX, will our personal tax (either as pass-through or corporate) be calculated for payment in TX or WI or both? I'm aware that TX has no personal income tax; therefore, will we get this benefit if we incorporate in TX but live in WI?
If we incorporate in TX, will we have to register in WI as a foreign operation in WI b/c two of the owners are residens of WI and/or because we will be 'working from home' for some of the duties to operate the company in texas? Like I noted, we will not be offering any services directly to any business in WI.
How are Taxes to be paid by the Mexican Citizen in our partnership?
Please let me know if you need additioanl clarification on any of the points/qustions I've outlined.
Thanks for the help!
