I have received conflicting information and I am hoping for a straight answer. My business is an online company, we create websites for creative professionals. The product we make is built in CO and we are a registered business in CO but we employ people in CA. The employees in California help us with bookeeping and customer support. We have registered as an employer in CA but we have not registered as a business.
We were told by our original accountant that if we are not creating a product in CA we did not need to register as a business there but we are now being told that we need to. Here is the quote we were given by our CO accountant:
'Corporations that organize in California, register in California, conduct business in California, or receive California source income, must file California Form 100.'
Unfortunately, I did not study tax law and cannot make heads or tails of this and our accountant does not seem to know anymore than we do.
With as aggressive as CA is with their taxes we would of course prefer not to pay taxes to both states for registering our business. Any advice out there?
