I plan to form an LLC in Delaware. I'm a citizen of an EU country and a resident of another EU country. Now... I manage a website that targets one of these countries and I need to be able to charge advertising fees for long term campaigns.
The question is can a non-US resident alien SMLLC legally operate within the US without registering in any of these EU countries? By switching interchangeably between the two, am I considered to have nexus in any (or both) of these countries? Can I just choose to pay federal income taxes in the US, and, if so, what's the procedure to elect to be taxed by the IRS?
By just getting a virtual office & phone no. would the LLC be considered doing business in the US and require to fill a return with the IRS?
No employees needed for 1 - 1.5 years, but planning to sell a series of monthly subscription services in about 6 months from now, besides these long-term advertising campaigns.
Choosing an SMLLC taxed as a sole proprietorship would require to pay taxes in my home country? Or should I elect to be taxed as a C-Corp, or better incorporate (instead of forming the LLC)?
What would be your setup?
