Washington Corporation and LLC Kits

You can probably save both time and money by using one of our economical, downloadable LLC or incorporation kits for forming a Washington State corporation or LLC.

Note, though, that you actually have two DIY kits to choose from...

Do-it-yourself Option #1 – Washington Limited Liability Company Kit

To form an LLC with one of our kits, download our Washington limited liability company kit and then immediately skim through the 20+ page pdf document that discusses and describes the twin benefits of using an llc for your business or investing. The pdf document also explains in step-by-step fashion how to setup your Washington llc in a few minutes, how to get a federal tax identification number for your new llc so you can start banking and other financial activities, and how to elect to have your llc treated (for income tax purposes) as a C corporation or as an S Corporation so you can maximize your tax savings.
