Not necessarily true. It took us all of 48 hours and $300 to get ourselves set
up as an LLC in Delaware, while we were in California. We knew we would have to
pay California taxes, but the whole setup procedure in California would take
much longer. California's "stiff penalties" are imposed if you try to avoid
paying taxes ($800 per year minimum) as an entity doing business in California,
but that's normal for income taxes. We now pay an annual registration fee to
Delaware in the neighborhood of $50, plus the normal taxes in California. And I
highly recommend 'playing the Delaware game.'
