Do I have to file a yearly tax for my Wyoming LLC if I am a non-resident alien?

There are two types of filings that you may need to do to keep your Wyoming LLC in good standing and to properly report your income.

The first is the filing you must complete with the Wyoming Secretary of State. This is called an Annual Report. This must be filed annually by the first day of the LLC’s anniversary month and can be filed online here. Based on the information reported on this form, the state will calculate your Annual Report License Tax that will be payable to the state. This reporting requirement and tax is assessed on all businesses formed in Wyoming.

The second type of tax filing you may need to complete is income tax returns. As a non-resident alien, there are a number of factors that need to be considered when determining your federal and state reporting requirements including your presence in the U.S., whether you yourself conduct business in the U.S., the types of agents you use to carry out your business in the US—either dependent or independent, and whether the business produces effectively connected taxable income (ECTI).
