When operating business activities or investing in the United States, formation of a business entity that will afford limited liability to its owners is generally the proper approach. However, the type of business entity and the state where it will be organized are complicated decisions that will depend on your specific circumstances. The U.S. tax and reporting requirements are different for corporations and other limited entities. Furthermore, accounting for how income from the activity will be taxed abroad based on the identified structure will also play a crucial role in the decision-making.
