Doesn't CA levy a minimum tax on corps whether or not there is any activity?Yep. $800 per year. And the $800 also applies to LLCs and limited partnerships as well.The good news for the OP is that the minimum tax is not applied to the first year of a corporation. (But it does apply to the first year of an LLC or an LP.)And to confuse matters a bit further, for corporations the $800 is a minimum tax. S corps are taxed at 1.5% of net income, C corps at 9.3%. So you pay the larger of the two - the percentage or $800.LPs pay the $800 and they're done.LLCs get a gross receipts fee in addition to the $800. That starts with a $900 fee when gross receipts hit $250k, and tops out at a $11,790 fee for gross receipts in excess of $5 million.So there's a significant cost to using an entity to limit your liabilities in CA.--Peter
