I have an existing DBA with a EIN and state tax id. I want to form an LLC and have the existing DBA operate under the new LLC. Is this possible?
If I form my corporation now (before the end of the year) and have it ready to do business in 2014, will I have to file a tax return with IRS for 2013? I won't be generating or accepting any revenue this year, but want to be ready on Jan 1st to be up and running.
As far as a DBA goes, I (as a non u.s citizen living in Canada) have already registered a LLC there in Wyoming but need to register a DBA as the name of my business will be different to name of the LLC which is already registered. As I don't have a physical location in Wyoming as it's an online store I'm not sure what to do! Thank you

I live in Virginia and I want to form a legal business identity (MAYBE in Virginia or any other state which is more suitable for me), I'm a single owner and I'll be selling software services Online in US and Canada.
As I'm a single owner, have no employees at this movement and working from home but maybe later I'll get an office and 2 to 3 employees, but in this current situation I will be only providing software services and support to my customers, I won't be doing the marketing or advertising in fact I will outsource the marketing to different marketing companies overseas on commission basis e.g India, Malaysia, Philippine etc.
Let says my monthly sales income is around $20,000, I will pay between 40% to 60% commission to those marketing companies overseas, now for example 50% ($10,000) is left for me from which I will cover the cost of software packages delivered to customers which is around $2500 (drop shipping will be done by an online company that manufacture and deliver software packages with your company name and logo). Finally $7500 is left for me as a profit.
Now my questions are:
1) How the taxes going to work from me? Also will I be responsible to pay taxes on 50% that paid to those marketing companies overseas?
2) Which is the best business structure to form Sole prop, LLC or Inc?
3) Do I need to fill Foreign entity?
4) Do I need a business license/permit to conduct business/Sell in all the states or I only need for Virginia State or I don't need a business license as it's an online business?
5) Is it better to form legal business identity in Virginia or Delaware or any other state?
6) Why do people prefer to from LLC in Delaware when it comes to an online business?
7) If I form LLC in Delaware, can i get a business account in Virginia?
8) Lastly which is the best way to minimize my taxes?
Please provide me with as much information and advice as you can, I'm new to this and really confused I don't know how or where to start from.
Thank you in advance.
