I have a Nevada Corporation. I want to dissolve the Nevada Corporation, create a new corporation in Ohio and merge the old Nevada Corporation into it. Are you able to help and what is the cost? Nevada seems to charge excessive fees for the corpoate franchise and really offers nno serious advantage over Ohio privacy so I would like to move it here. I understand that by doing the merger I would preserve the federal tax ID. Thanks R Walter

Dear Richard Wslter:

Thanks for choosing InfoTaxSquare.com for your business needs. To re-domesticate corporation from one state to another state, both states must recognize the provision of re-domestication. In your case State of Nevada allows to re-domesticate the entity but unfortunately State of OH ( does not have a provision for re domestication and you are required to file Initial Articles of Incorporation, to form the Ohio corporation).

If you are located in the state of OH, we suggest you to incorporate your company in the state of OH to avoid maintaining  two states. Some folks have misconception that  they can by pass their resident states laws and taxation. Technically you pay taxes based on your residency not where the entity is registered.

Technically and legally, you must obtain Certificate of Authority or  also called Foreign Entity Qualification of your residency state. In your case if you are physically located in the state of Ohio then you must have Certificate of Authority of your Nevada Corporation in the state of Ohio, otherwise you will be subject to fines by the state, local and federal agencies if you ever come under the audit or noticed by the departments.

You can use the following links respectively to incorporate your business in the state of Ohio and Dissolve in the state of Nevada.

Kurt   wrote on : Wed Oct 09th,2013
The information above lists states (including Georgia) that don't allow re-domestication to keep the age of the entity in tact. Does this mean that I can re-domesticate to or from Georgia if I do not care that the age of the company will change?
Reply : infotaxsquare.com
 
Dear Kurt,

Re-Domestication depends on home state and the foreign state. Please let us know the structure of your entity, meaning LLC or a corporation What are your home and foreign states to advice your properly?
