    How can I set up a trucking company out of state? I live in California BTW. Just trying to live in Cali but operate my trucking business in Arizona. I’m pretty sure there has to be a solution to this.

    I'm guessing you need a physical address in Arizona not a po bix.

    Probably not very easy, other wise everyone would just set up a business in a state with lowest taxes. If your doing it to avoid taxes. It probably not worth the trouble. You could buy or rent a building or office space run your business out of that. That will get expensive kinda quick.

    Why not just move to AZ or NV? If you want to live in CA then you need to stay there and deal with the taxes and all the other nonsense that your politicians have put in place.

    Are you trying to get an authority or just use an LLC to run your trucking through while leased on somewhere?

    It is easy, just establish the business in Arizona with an authority.

    You will have to do a couple things though.

    you will have to talk to a California CPA about the tax liabilities and have both an Arizona CPA and lawyer do the work for you to set it up.

    They may recommend an LLC but think about c corp, they can go into the pros and cons of each one but it may be easier to have it a C and run it remotely.

    You will need a presence in Arizona by the way.

    I do this with part of my company, I have an Indiana business and run it from my office here in Michigan. I pay taxes for both states but it is a peace of mind that I was trying to get out of it and have.
