    i don't think it's necessary to do either one...but you can if you want to...it's not required by law or anything...at least not here

  3. kinda all depends on what you want and are doing, talk to your cpa to see which fits you.

    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.

    i would go LLC must easier on the taxes, then INC with very few draw back if any
