Overview

Incorporate Your Business: A Legal Guide to Forming a Corporation in Your State by Anthony Mancuso

Set up a corporation, skip the lawyer, save money!

Incorporate Your Business lays out everything you need to know about corporate laws and regulations in your state, clearly explaining:

  • why and when to incorporate
  • what you need to know about corporate taxation
  • whether to elect S corporation tax status
  • how to incorporate an existing business

    Plus, you can save thousands of dollars in attorneys' fees by incorporating a business yourself -- Incorporate Your Business guides you through each step. In the end, your business will enjoy a number of advantages, including:

    Limited Liability

    Incorporating your business limits personal liability for business debts -- this means owners are not normally financially liable for business debts and court judgments.

    Tax Advantages

    You can split business income between yourself and your corporation, thereby lowering income taxes.

    Access to Capital

    Corporations have better access to private venture capital than any other type of business. They are also well positioned to raise capital by selling shares to the public.

    Employee Perks

    The owners of a corporation who work for the business are treated as employees. They can take advantage of tax-deductible, corporate-paid benefits such as:
  • pension plans
  • stock-option and stock bonus plans
  • medical expense reimbursement
  • term life insurance coverage
  • and more

    Incorporate Your Business provides the forms you need as tear-outs and on CD-ROM, including articles of incorporation, bylaws, minutes, stock certificates and resolutions.

    The 4th editionprovides the latest federal laws, plus the current laws, rules and procedures of your state.
