Everyone planning to set up a new corporation or LLC faces the question of what state should they form the entity in. You read on the Internet or see ads on television about the "wonders" of incorporating in some particular state. The half of the truth that the proponents generally don't tell you is what can later bite you.
Why would you spend the time and money to set up a legal entity--a corporation or LLC (Limited Liability Company)--if you did not plan to use it? It seems that almost weekly we learn that people have a legal entity they paid for--but they never took the steps necessary to properly transfer their business or its assets into the entity.
