I went to my town hall last year hoping to register and they had no idea what i was talking about.. i guess ill try at it again.
Like Troy said, try your county court house and look for the clerk there to do it. There is probably a nominal filing fee, maybe $25?

Let us know how this turns out for you.

3 Called my city. turns out it's the same as my county.

Each state, county, city is different. Just touch base with each and ask them what a business needs to do to get started.

Do not pay a lawyer to fill out paperwork UNTIL you try it yourself and absolutely cannot figure it out AND have taken that paperwork into your county office and ask them to help. Do not assume you need a lawyer for paperwork until all else fails, it is a waste of money.

I agree 1000% lol

I actually called the state corporation commission and filed my business name then called the irs and got my tax id for free and then went to the state and got my fictitious name (so i could drop the INC) and so i could do business in that city and sent the fictitious name back off to the state all in all in VA it cost me $130 for everything.

Legal Zoom is a rip off i learned after my last business that lawyers are crooks!!!
