Nevada vs. Texas Incorporation Comparison

Corporations in Texas pay only a 1% gross receipts franchise tax, retailers pay half of that. Texas also does not charge a personal income tax. However Texas ranks 47 on the Tax Foundation’s Corporate Tax Ranking Index. Texas, like Nevada, is also one of the few states that use charging orders as creditor’s sole remedy for LLC and corporations. Nevada corporations get better asset protection than Texas however. Nevada also allows Series LLC incorporations and has a business court, among others. For a complete comparison of incorporating in Nevada vs. Texas see the table below:
