    This question does actually relate to web design and development, but not directly:

    Are there any services in the US that will let you rent or share the use of a physical US address for the purposes of establishing a US business presence? I don't mean actually renting the building itself and using it. I mean just renting the address itself and whoever lives there or owns the building can do what they want with it.

    Anyone know if such an animal exists?

    I am pretty sure that's not allowed. The IRS requires that you have a physical presence at the specified location, so they know where to find you if you owe back-taxes :-P

    EDIT: Pretty much along the lines of why you can't use a PO Box for your physical address.

    This is what confuses me about the whole thing. If that were the case, what would stop someone from skipping town if they owed back taxes?

    If you used an American acountancy firm that would be your registered address - although I'm pretty sure they'd get a bit annoyed if they were receiving your mail every day!
