Where should I incorporate my business as an LLC if I don't intend on opening an office or hiring any employees? I sell my app to other businesses. I do want an LLC because I don't intend on going public nor do I intend on having investors. I only attend one trade show a year in Nevada.

It largely depends on where the activity is occurring. If you are boasting a NY business address for example then you might want to consider setting up in NY. If the physical address is not relevant to the business model and you know at least you will have boots on the ground in NV once a year then setting up in NV might be the best option.
Before you commit to anything, I suggest that you consult with a lawyer in private and discuss your objectives in more detail. You can start by calling around to several for a free phone consultation, get some insights then pick the best fit to work with.
If you would like to discuss further over a free phone consult, feel free to contact me anytime that is convenient.

My colleague is correct, however there are additional considerations to be made that if not taken into account will result in you having to file taxes in multiple jurisdictions.
My flat fee for incorporation is just slightly higher than automated services like legal zoom and the likes AND you get an attorney doing it! Please contact me directly.

That’s a great question. There are so many variables to consider answering the question “where should I incorporate“ that I wouldn’t answer that question by email and without having you as a client. There are just so many consequences which would flow from being incorporated (or LLC) one state to another. I’m afraid this isn’t the kind of legal advice you can get on the Internet.
