What are my options as far as forming a business entity?

You have numerous options as far as forming a new business. You can operate under your individual name, as a sole proprietorship, as a fictitious entity, a limited liability company (LLC), a general business corporation, a subchapter S corporation, a close corporation, a professional corporation, a partnership, a limited liability partnership, and a nonprofit corporation. Only an attorney who regularly practices in business law can guide you through this maze and find the entity that is best suited for your particular situation.
