I'll probably say this in all my posts about starting this business. Get help! Don't do it all alone. I was not completely on my own but I made a lot more decisions after just discussing it with myself than I had to. This was one of them. I could've talked to a mentor or that accountant before filing the paperwork.
That being said, I filed at just the right time since I have an entire quarter until my first tax filing date. I used LegalZoom to l create all the paperwork and file it as necessary. I could have chatted with them a bit but I was trying get it done. They have a great system in place that is simple to follow. And at the end of it you get all your official paperwork in a nice professional binder.
I am on my way. Excelsior Events, Inc is on its way.
