The Series LLC is a flexible structure that is fortunately accessible to real estate investors all over the nation. If you aren’t yet familiar with the Series LLC’s many perks , they’re well worth getting to know. While the option is not yet available in every state, investors may choose to form Series LLCs out-of-state. Of course, it’s natural to wonder whether your state offers setting up an in-state Series LLC as a Nevada investor. We will go over in-state and out-of-state options, while answering some frequently asked questions and providing tips for how you can get the help you need from your paid professionals.
Nevada is indeed among the states that offer a Series LLC. The state began offering the Series LLC with changes to its LLC legislation in 2005. Nevada is a great state for forming a Traditional LLC as well, as it has strong protections for Traditional LLCs that we have written about in greater detail before.
While Nevada has its own option for Series LLCs, it is important for investors to recognize that the Series LLC can be stronger or weaker based on the jurisdiction it is formed in. For this reason, it is smart for investors from Nevada or anywhere else to fully examine out-of-state options as well.
While it is true that Nevada’s LLC options are certainly better than average for the United States, it can be enlightening to compare it to another pro-business state’s offering. We have found in our professional experience that the Texas Series LLC is a great option for investors nationwide. This entity is freely available to any investor, including Nevada real estate investors, to use.
The Texas Series LLC may offer these and other advantages:
Delaware can also make a great choice. If you study the Series LLC, you will quickly learn it has a strong history in the state. Delaware also makes use of Chancery Courts, which are overseen by judges who specialize in business law. The judicial benefits of Delaware Series LLCs make it a popular, and smart choice.
When deciding where to form your entity, always ask about taxes and fees you may owe. A wise investor can easily make a pro and con list about their desired state of formation to aid in decision making. As a bonus, this is also a great way to come up with questions to ask your attorney.
