|Montana Corporation Benefits|
|Well-Defined Business Structure||The Montana corporation is a well-established business structure. Corporate duties are carried out by the officers and directors. The board of directors manages the business affairs, while the officers deal with the day to day operations.|
|Corporate Income Tax||Montana does have a corporate income tax of 6.75%. Double taxation means that a corporation will pay tax on its profits and individual shareholders in Montana pay individual state income tax on dividends. The individual income tax rate ranges from 1% to 6.9%.|
|Strong Liability Protection||One or more persons may form a Montana corporation. Montana’s Business Corporation Act allows the incorporators to create a separate entity by filing articles of incorporation. Thus, the corporation may act and be held liable apart from its shareholders, officers, and directors.|
|Investor Usability||Montana corporations can sell stocks and shares to raise capital. Possible investors will likely be comfortable investing in a corporation.|
Montana corporations are formed by filing a formation document called the Articles of Incorporation with the Secretary of State.
Montana corporations can be filed by mail, fax, or online. Normal processing takes about 10 days.
