Texas C-Corporation Filing Service

There are several advantages of a Texas c-corporation filing and they include limiting owner risk, liability, and possible tax savings.  A main reason to incorporate in Texas is the liability protection of your personal assets.

When you set up a regular Texas corporation it helps to separate company and personal assets.  A Texas corporation is formed to separate the officers and shareholders from any debts that the business incurs.  Typically, shareholders are not liable for the debts and obligations of the business. If you operate currently as a partnership or sole proprietorship, the creditors can go after the owner’s personal assets if the company’s assets are not enough to settle a claim.  This is a very dangerous concept for a small business owner who has assets to protect. Solve these issues and many more by incorporating in Texas today…….

How To Set Up A Texas C-Corporation Filing In Texas

You need to file a Certificate of Formation to incorporate your business in Texas. You file the Certificate of Formation with the Texas Secretary of State. There is a $300 filing fee required by the State. You can file this document online on the Texas Secretary of State’s website (SOSDirect). The appropriate steps to set up a corporation in Texas are:
