Nevada vs. Oklahoma Incorporation Comparison

Oklahoma is one of the few states that offers the series LLC incorporations. Oklahoma has other asset protection policies including mandating that charging order is creditor’s sole remedy for an LLC or corporation. On the other hand, businesses incorporating in Oklahoma have to pay franchise tax and 6% corporate income tax. You can avoid those taxes entirely by incorporating in Nevada. In Nevada you get all the same asset protections as Oklahoma, but also charging order protections, highest standard for corporate veil protection and business court.
