Nevada vs. Colorado Incorporation Comparison

In Colorado the state personal and corporate income taxes are fairly low, though they do have an estate tax. In the area of asset protection, Nevada provides greater corporate benefits with statutory indemnification of officers, directors and employees. This clear cut statue provides binding protection where case law is still open to interpretation in the courts. See the Colorado Attorney General’s website for more details. Below we have compiled a detailed comparison of the benefits of incorporating a business in Nevada vs. Colorado:
