We are 3 individuals each living in a different states (CA, NJ, NY) who are looking to form an LLC. The LLC will be creating software applications online and these applications will be sold through a third party online distributor as well as the company website. We were hoping that some of the smart people on here could help answer a few questions, all of which center around this main one: What are the key considerations when forming an LLC for a business selling software online?
Some additional related questions:
After much research we've discovered that the bulk of information offers advice if you're forming a company with a physical storefront e.g., it doesn't matter where you incorporate since you'll still have to register as a foreign business in your home state. Is this true even when selling software online?
Are there any special requirements given that each member is living/working in a different state?
If we decide to incorporate in "business friendly" states such as Nevada or Delaware what are the consequences if no one lives in-state?
Since we each live in a different state, does that mean we are operating in 3 different states? If so, do we need to form an LLC or register in each state?
We've had difficulty finding websites with specific information around LLCs and forming an online software company. Can anyone help point us in the right direction?
