I am a US citizen want to create a company in the US that will not disclose my name or other personal information.

How can I create such an entity? Are some states better for this purpose than others?

    The point of registering a company is that people interacting with it have a right to know who they are dealing with. – DJClayworth Sep 26 '18 at 15:58

    @DJClayworth I have no problem with accountability, but I desire privacy. – TLDR Sep 26 '18 at 17:52

    How can you be accountable to people if they don't know who you are? – DJClayworth Sep 26 '18 at 17:55

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is not about personal finance. – Chris W. Rea Sep 26 '18 at 18:27

I recommend that you hire a business attorney who can point you in the right direction and also be a representative for your business.

According to the Law 4 Small Business blog, New Mexico seems to have the best options for being anonymous.

New Mexico is one of the few states that allows for truly anonymous limited liability companies. An anonymous LLC means the state does not maintain any records of ownership or management, and therefore has nothing to disclose. In New Mexico, only the Articles of Organization are submitted to the state, and the Articles requires only two names: The organizer and the registered agent, neither of which need to be the actual owner or manager of the anonymous LLC.
