    How do most of you guys have your businesses set-up. Are they LLC, S-corp, or sole proprietorships. I am just curious.

    i set mine up as an LLC, cost $90 and $25 for the sales tax number, FID was free from the IRS web site, and it was givien on the spot. the nice thing about an LLC is that you get the same tax as a sole prop. and file on the 1040 form if you want.

    S-CORP Talk to your accountant for your best way to set yourself up. Don't listen to anyone but your accountant on this matter.

    I went with S CORP for my Business and it was around $350. Check into which best suits your needs. Some prefer sole, LLC, and others prefer Inc. Talk to an accountant and he will help you figure it out
