I was wondering what states for tax purposes is best to operate out of? After driving OTR for a company for a couple years I’m going to buy a truck & get my own authority due to this new independent contractor law and even if not for that as a LLC & owning my own business and then planning on adding a few more trucks I would like to set up my business in a tax friendly state to get every bit of my $$ out my business. We are in California now but we are moving out of this nightmare either way after living here for 49 years. I won’t get into politics because what’s happening here is not a red or blue issue it’s plain insanity so since we are moving soon I’m wondering what states look good for Trucking, general business taxes and regulations and a quality of life in general. We have been in rural northern ca for yrs but a nice small city with a couple acres to have a shop for the trucks and all our toys doesn’t sound to bad. Florida? Where in Florida? Texas? Where in Texas? Wyoming? Where in Texas? Tennessee ? Where in Tennessee? Or any other recommendations and why would be greatly appreciated. I will say I have a line on loads running from WA to Alaska and back 9 months out of the year but I can park my trucks anywhere and run my business out of anywhere it just figuring out where and realistically I’ll be on the road 325 days a year so it’s all about money really. Thanks for your help.

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.
