Nevada vs. Utah Incorporation Comparison

Corporate income tax in Utah is fairly mild at 5%. Compared to the nation Utah ranks 5 on the Tax Foundation’s Corporate Tax Ranking. Utah’s personal income tax is also 5% and they also levy an estate tax. Utah is also one of the few states which will incorporate series LLCs. Incorporating in Nevada has some advantages over Utah though, since Nevada doesn’t have a state corporate or personal income tax. You can incorporate as a Series LLC in Nevada as well, and you also can take advantage of other asset protection policies like the Nevada business court and the highest standard of corporate veil protection. Below we have compiled a detailed graph of the differences between incorporating in Utah and Nevada:
