    The accountant said it was gonna cost all together 600 or so.. S corp? It almost freaked us out lol ..she acted like we were a 250,000 company already ... It's cheaper on legal zoom! What were wanting is a licenses and insurance DBA and or LLC .. Also who do you'll use for insurance ?

    Each state is different but in WI its cheaper and plenty easy to set up an llc on your own but we dont need a license for lawn care or some landscaping. $130 to file the llc and $10 to get a sellers permit
