I formed a California LLC (2 member partnership) in October '15 but hasn't done any business yet. I see that I was supposed to pay $800 annual tax by using form 3522 by 01-15-2016 and pay another $800 (form 568) by April 15, 2016. 1. Can I avoid the first year's $800 by filing short-form cancellation with SOS (LLC -4/8). What do I have to do to get my business active after filing LLC - 4/8? Are there any other way I can avoid annual taxes until I start doing business in California? Thank you!
