I'M SO CONFUSED!
start here: BizLinks: Your Guide to Minnesota Business Information
Most states will have a business registration guidebook that will have sample forms and requirements.
This applies to Minnesota.
You don't need a lawyer if the LLC is one person. The Secretary of State website has the Articles of Incorporation in PDF format under the business page.
Look up your company name to make sure it is not being used,
Fill out the Articles of Incorporation form,
Mail it in with a check for $135.
Wait for a response from the SOS office.
Get a state EIN tax number and a Federal EIN tax number.
File LLC taxes with a schedule "C" to the 1040 form.
Too easy. If you have a partner or multiple employees, there are additional papers the lawyer recommended for additional protection of personnal property.
