Ya I would highly recommend going online or going to a library and picking up a book on forming a business... Lots of perks and down sides involved in picking a business structure and only YOU can really decide which one is best for your company... Besides, what works for me is going to be totally different then what works for you.... Read up on it and go from there...

I picked up "small business for dummies" when we started. Easy to understand.
