Michael- how much does it cost to register an LLC? Whats the benefit? (if indepth, maybe this could be another thread?)
It depends on your state. Each one has different fees for LLC. You also need a lawyer to draw up the papers for the LLC - I personally used LegalZoom - and don't recall exactly the cost but I think it was about $200 including the state filing fee in VA. Their website will tell you for sure. I talked to a lawyer and I think he was going to charge $800 or so to set one up - but I didn't need anything fancy so I went with LegalZoom the lawyer even told me that for as simple of a LLC as I wanted that Legal Zoom might be the best approach.
