EIN Assistance – $50
EIN stands for Employer Identification Number. Think of an EIN as a Social Security number for your business. You will file all your tax returns using this number and may need it to open a bank account for the business. You may obtain an EIN for free without our assistance at IRS.gov.
Foreign Qualifications – $249
If your structure requires that you qualify to do business in another state in addition to your initial formation state then you will need to file a foreign qualification. State filing fees and registered agent service are additional.
Corporate Direct Expedite Fee – $279
Typical formations will be completed within 30 days and are processed in the order received. By paying this fee you will be pushed to the front of the formation queue. Expedited formation times will vary per state as different states offer different filing windows and expedited filing options. An additional fee to the state may be required in order to achieve your desired timeline. Please ask your Incorporating Specialist for details and timelines before ordering expedited services.
Mail Forwarding Service – $360/annually
