Nevada is regarded as one of the most favorable states for forming an LLC. Some of the favorable aspects to forming an LLC in Nevada are:
- “Pass-Through” taxation: LLC’s formed in Nevada are not required to pay any taxes from a business perspective. If an LLC incurs loss, or gains income, then it is “passed-through” to the owners. Meaning, it is instead reported as the owner’s income tax.
- Limited Liability Protection: LLC stands for “limited liability company,” which is provided to the members of the Nevada LLC. Members who form an LLC in Nevada are not responsible for any liabilities of the LLC, or any business debts. An added benefit of this aspect is that creditors will not be able to pursue any personal assets of the members to clear business debts. Personal assets include property, bank accounts, etc.
- No Taxes: When you form an LLC in Nevada, you will be exempt from state level taxes, such as corporate income tax, estate or gift tax, franchise tax on income, unitary tax, and admissions tax.
- High Level of Privacy: LLC’s in Nevada are not required to file publicly a list of owners. This provides added privacy for LLC owners and investors.
