I have a Canadian company doing e-commerce business to the States. My operation is in Canada but my customer base is located in US. My customers experience problem when they pay by debit card because their banks do not let their payment go through because my merchant account is a Canadian one. To solve this problem I need to be a US merchant. To qualify as a US Merchant, it requires a FID#. I read about registering a LLC in Wyoming to obtain a FID # or EIN. What is the tax implication? Can I sell my products at sell price to my LLC in Wyoming to have zero profit. Does it raise any legal problem? Will this practice be acceptable in respect of Federal Tax? Any suggestion as how to get a FID / EIN #?

I am Canadian, planning to do internet business only with shipping from within the USA through amazon.com. I want my US entity to be owned by my Canadian corporation. How do I start?
I own a business here in Canada which I have been running for 12 years. We make belts in Canada and sell them internationally, mostly in the USA. I recently started selling on Amazon.com and have just found out that the only way they are able to pay me is by transferring money to a US account. I thought it would be fine to do this through our US-dollar bank account which we have here in Canada, but they informed me that it has to be done via a US account that is physically in USA. I have found out that I can open up a personal checking account in USA (in US dollars) no problem and this would work out just fine. My question to you is, since all of my sales are done from Canada, if I open this account and have Amazon.com transfer funds to this account, and then transfer the money to my business account here in Canada (which I will be taxed on in Canada), is that legal in the eyes of the US government? I don't want to get into trouble down the road вЂ“ having the US government thinking that I am earning income in the USA. I am just simply transferring money from the US bank account in the USA to my account in Canada. In other words.. This is the only way I can get paid by Amazon! Another option would be for me to register my business in USA and then open up a US account, but that is a lot of expense just for the sake of getting paid by Amazon! I really don't want to do that, especially since my sales on Amazon are not that high. And, I won't be running my business from the USA. The money is sitting the the Amazon.com account and I am doing research to see how I can best transfer it to my Canadian account. help!

For example, I am confused about tax implications for Canadian's having an LLC in US.
I am a Canadian citizen who has been given a house in California in a will. There is still about $500k mortgage outstanding on it in the deceased' name. I have approached lenders in California and they have said they will not give me a loan as foreigner. So essentially when the mortgage renews I won't be able to get financing myself. I was wondering if it's possible to set up an LLC or trust to hold my real estate and then get financing through the LLC? The property has 3 rental units on it (a house then 2 small rental units above the garage in the rear).
