My client who is domiciled in California formed an LLC in Arizona - he is also a member manager. The business is in Arizona, and all transactions are in Arizona. I know since the member manager is domiciled in CA, the Arizona LLC is considered doing business in CA, so the Arizona LLC needs to file CA form 568 and pay $800 LLC tax. My questions are:
- Do I need to register with the CA Secretary of State?
- When I pay the $800 to CA, can I show that on the AZ return and claim a credit?
