When I started my first company 10+ years ago I paid my lawyer a coupla hundred bucks to do all the paperwork, and was rewarded with a spanking new C-corp. Life was good.
Now I find myself needing to incorporate a new company, this time as an S-corp. I know I can complete all the paperwork myself and pay the $100 state filing fee, but I'd feel better if professionals handled it.
Things have changed since the crazy days of 1996, when cars were powered by mastodon dung and cats didn't have the right to vote. There are now some websites that allow you to fill out a few fields, charge your credit card, and DING, instant coporation. As simple as registering a domain name.
My concern is: who (whom?) to trust. Which sites actually do what's required by law for a reasonable fee, and which sites are dangerously stupid to use?
Anyone done this before? Which service would you recommend? Which to avoid?
