How to take advantage of being a Nevada resident:

There are two ways to reap Nevada’s freedom from taxes.

  1. First is to start a corporation for your business’ tax relief. Consult a Nevada CPA or legal professional for more detailed information on incorporating your business in Nevada.
  2. As an individual, you will need to become a resident of the state. Individuals who are “domiciled” in Nevada and become Nevada residents will generally escape state taxation of their income, except for income arising from sources within another state. Again, check with your financial professional on income derived in other states. Even if part of your income has to be taxed in other states, you may still see a reduction in your overall tax liability.
