I am setting up a new S corporation in Nevada. On the https://nvsos.gov/ website they appear to list the corporate officers names and roles. My company works in the adult internet entertainment industry and I am not really looking to have my name be listed.
Is it possible to only list my attorneys information as perhaps a nominee officer (secretary?) but not give any actual or power in the corporation.
States require officer to be listed so that the responsible parties can be identified for suits and other liabilities.Probably not, and what makes you think that an attorney would stick his neck for you?
