The U.S. capital of Washington, D.C. is not in fact in the state of Washington (located to the northwest) but in the District of Columbia; it is an exclusive jurisdiction and not subject to any U.S. state. The name “Washington, D.C.” is an abbreviated version of the district. The city itself is situated on the banks of the Potomac River on the East Coast. Its neighbors are Virginia to the southwest, and Maryland on all other borders. In 1790 the decision to establish a capital district that would serve all the federated states of America was made, and the city of Washington was chosen. Named after the first U.S. president, George Washington, the city constitutes an important business and financial center, and also concentrates all activities relating to the incorporation of foreign companies in the district, helped greatly by a moderate tax policy.
The population of the district numbers 650,000 people, although with work commuters during the day this number rises to 1 million. The entire metropolitan area has 5.7 million residents. Washington, D.C. is the site of all three federal branches – Congress (on Capitol Hill), the President (White House) and the Supreme Court, as well as all federal government offices. The city has a variety of national monuments and museums dedicated to the American legacy and to the important people that contributed to building that great nation.For Viewing Washington D.C., U.S.A. in Google Maps - Click Here
Naturally for the capital city of a country as large as the U.S., the biggest employer of the district is the public and government sectors. The city’s economy is based largely on a powerful and extensive public sector, educated professionals and services-related businesses. GDP of the District of Columbia is 103 billion USD, with productivity of the entire metropolitan area (including those also outside the District) at 425 billion USD. It is ranked second nationally in size of its tourism sector, with the city drawing in over 18 million visitors annually. Additionally, Washington holds an enormous number of companies and organizations of all fields, including law, work unions, aid and health organizations, independent contractors (security and civilian), various lobby groups, and also important international organizations, such as the World Bank.
LLCs may be incorporated in Washington, a good compromise offering the benefits of both a partnership and a limited company. LLCs have many advantages, the most prominent of which is a 0% corporate tax rate for foreign companies registering in the district whose source of income is not within the U.S. and whose owners are not U.S. citizens.
