Where to Incorporate a Business or Form an LLC
You can incorporate your business or form your LLC in any state.
However small business owners often decide that incorporating or forming an llc in their home state is what makes sense for them. By doing this they avoid additional costs and paperwork associated with forming in one state and then having to qualify their corporation or LLC to do business as a foreign entity in another state.
For example, let's say you form an llc or incorporate a business in Florida but you are operating your business in Illinois. Illinois will require you to qualify your Florida company to do business in their state. This is commonly known as a foreign qualification.
