Answer by Raad Ahmed:

I’ll just summarize the basic concepts of incorporating and how it compares to the states you’ve listed here.

Privacy

Wyoming (like Delaware) doesn’t require that you submit your name to a database so you can remain virtually anonymous and protect your privacy. Nevada requires you to submit a tax identification number and well as a personal gurantee on the business license.

Fees

Wyoming is said to be less than most other states. There’s no business licensing fees or filing fees.

Tax Haven

Wyoming, Nevada, and Delaware are all considered “tax havens” as they don’t require a corporation tax for business done outside of the state.

Bottom line? The rule of thumb is to incorporate where you will be doing business as that will simplify the process.
