    If you are just looking to create articles of incorporation, you can learn a lot online via the Colorado secretary of state site. You might already be past that though.

    Good luck

    I agree on the s-corp. That is what I did and it does save some money on taxes from going the llc route. I have a guy in Co Springs I use for accounting/taxes. You might want someone closer to Denver though?

    yep, i'm now looking more for "real world" advice from a pro that can hopefully raise issues that i'm not aware of as to why it would or would not be a good idea for my particular needs (and find someone w/ whom to confer during tax time).

    Actually, make sure they mention S Corp, and SE taxes. Otherwise don't hire them. It's probably worth talking with an attorney as well, as there's more to the Corp/LLC choice then taxes.

    But, use of an S Corp for tax purposes doesn't preclude being an LLC for state law purposes (an LLC can be an S Corp), and there can be advantages to doing that.

    Definitely S-Corp.

    I recommend G&L Associates in FC. I've been with them since I started 3 years ago. They're not cheap, but they will keep you in line and out of trouble. PM me if you'd like contact info.

    *edit* Sorry, just saw your preferred area. I do have a friend from Boulder who is going to start using them, though.
