Corporation FAQ

What is the procedure for forming a corporation, and what legal documents are required?

To create a corporation, you must file a document called the "articles of incorporation" with the Secretary of State or other appropriate state agency. Next, bylaws and organizing resolutions must be adopted. A corporation will also need to apply for a tax identification number with the IRS.

Unlike many other incorporation services which only create and file the articles of incorporation, LegalZoom can complete all of these required documents for you, including personalized bylaws and organizational resolutions.
