I'm single owner of Delaware LLC, non-resident. Need help with the first time tax preparation.
Specifically - income tax.
What do I need?
How to calculate?
How to fill?
How to avoid double taxation?
I paid Delaware franchise tax.
There are so many different moving pieces in this type of situation, you're best bet is to reach out to an expert accountant.
Personally, I use and recommend Eric from Charitax (http://charitax.com)
A single owner of a U.S. LLC is by default a disregarded entity for U.S. federal income tax purposes. Essentially, this means the entity is transparent for U.S. tax purposes. A single owner may file an election, under certain circumstances, to be treated as an S corporation or a C corporation. A foreign owned U.S. disregarded entity must file Form 5472 each year to report the business activity of the LLC, as well as information about the non-resident owner. The owner completes this task by filing a proforma Form 1120 with the Form 5472 attached. It's very important that these returns are filed timely and accurately. The IRS has recently increased the penalty for noncompliance from $10,000 to $25,000.
