Don't have an address, a driver's license, or proof of residency in any US state?
visitor.us can help. Here's how.
Setting up a Montana LLC can be done in as little as 2-3 business days.
International visitors holding an un-expired driver's license printed in English (or printed with English translations) may drive anywhere in the United States.
As a practical matter, law enforcement needs to understand your name, your date of birth, and the status of your driver's license in the event of a traffic stop or other incident. Therefore, if your driver's license is not printed in English (or was not printed with English translations), it is strongly suggested that you obtain an International Driving Permit (IDP) before driving in the United States.
IDP's supplement, but do not replace, original driver's licenses. The United States treats them as a translation of your driver's license.
Owning a legal entity in the United States (whether it's an LLC, B-Corp, C-Corp, S-Corp, or other entity) constitutes a company-shareholder relationship, not an employer-employee relationship. In this sense, owning all of the shares of a private company is no different from owning a single share of a public company (such as Apple, for example).
Visitor-type visas (B1, B2, etc.) prohibit employment in the United States.
Income taxes are due to the extent that your company generates income.
Most of our customers buy a vehicle and sell it at a slight loss - i.e., they don't generate any income at all.
Furthermore, in 2020, the income threshold for filing a US federal tax return was $12,000. Those that earned less than that threshold during the calendar year were not required to file a return.
Owning a company in the US does not, by itself, create any income tax liability or require you to file a tax return.
Yes! Owning a vehicle via a Montana Limited Liability Company is 100% legal for non-US residents.
Each US state requires its residents to register their vehicles in that state according a specific timeline (usually within 30 or 60 days of obtaining residency in that state).
Residents of California (for example), risk citation and fines if they own a vehicle via a Montana LLC.
Non-US residents, by definition, are not bound by any US state's vehicle registration requirements.
