directions to forming corporations by visiting the state agencies
that you want to incorporate in. The United States Small Business
Administration (SBA) has fairly up to date links to various state
incorporation agencies. Some states provide excellent directions
for incorporation and others; well let's just say they are what some

>> As a guide to forming
your own corporation, you may also want to look at some websites that
offer professional incorporation
services. These sites are geared to making the incorporation process
as easy as possible and the information they provide on their websites
can actually be used to help you form a corporation on your own. They
often have useful help sections to answer questions like "what
is par value" etc. Take note of the information they ask on their
online incorporation applications as that is a good indication of
what you will need to provide to the state if you continue to opt
for the do it yourself route.

books about how to incorporate. A couple notable books to help you
