So, if you incorporate and your company owes taxes in its country or state, it will pay taxes there. Then, the rest of the money will be transferred to your personal bank account and you’ll pay personal income taxes on that money.
If your company is a pass-through entity (such as US LLC), then the tax duties are being passed to the individual, which means that the company does not pay any corporate income taxes.
If your company is incorporated outside of your state/country and you live in your home state/country, your company will owe taxes in the country of incorporation and you’ll owe taxes in your state/country of residence.
Here are two examples to clarify it:
- Let’s imagine that you reside in Texas and your company is incorporated in Delaware. The company pays taxes in Delaware, but you pay your personal taxes in Texas.
- If you are a citizen of India, but you have incorporated in the US, your US company will owe taxes in the US. You will owe personal income taxes in India. If your incorporation structure allows for 0% taxation in the US, then you’ll pay only taxes in India.
