State Information:

Hawaii has been generally seen as one of the least business friendly states in terms of taxes and zoning regulations. A desire to create as small of an impact on the natural environment as possible means that, for most businesses, meeting all of Hawaii's demands can be a bit difficult.

However, Hawaii has a very streamlined filing process and plenty of resources available to help small business owners start up in the state. And, while the 11% income tax is high, the highest tax rate corporations will pay is 6.4%. So, in actuality, Hawaii is a nice place to open a business, especially if you're in the tourism or hospitality industries. Click here to learn more about starting a business in Hawaii.
