What is the charge that the structure need to have to be the most stable?

When formal charge is 0, the structure is most stable (when it is not an ion.) When it is an ion, formal charge should add to the charge. For example, an ion with -1 charge should have a formal charge of -1.

To be the most stable the formal charge has to be 0.
