Why Do Fees For Incorporating Vary From State To State So Dramatically?

Each state charges different filing fees for incorporation. California is three times the cost of New York State because an $800 initial minimum tax payment is required in addition to other charges. The fee your CPA charges for incorporating usually includes these disbursements made on your behalf.
