Do-It-Yourself Florida LLC Kit: Economy Edition
Florida Limited Liability Company Formation Kit
Need to form an LLC, or limited liability company, for a small business or real estate investment? Here's an idea: You might want to save some money and time by preparing and submitting the paperwork yourself.
Tip: Need to learn more about limited liability companies first? Visit the giant FAQ maintained by Stephen L. Nelson at the LLCs Explained website (visit homepage).
If you are ready to set up an LLC for a small business or real estate investment, the economy version of LLC Formation Kit can be your roadmap. Approximately twenty pages in length, the ebook document describes a limited liability company’s legal and tax characteristics and then provides step-by-step instructions for preparing the LLC formation documents and submitting the formation documents to the appropriate state agency. The document also provides step-by-step instructions for getting a federal tax identification number also known as an employer identification number or EIN.
Note: The premium version of the LLC kit differs from the economy version in one respect: The premium kit describes how to have an LLC treated for tax purposes as either an S corporation or a C corporation. You can visit the S Corporations Explained website (visit homepage) or the Fast Easy Incorporation Kits website (visit homepage) if you need more information about either of these options.
Special Bonus: In addition to the ebook pdf, the kit includes two sample operating agreements, one for single member limited liability companies and one for multiple member limited liability companies! Work from these boilerplate documents to create your own LLC operating agreement.
