I incorportated using http://www.incorporatega.com. You can do the
incorporation yourself, but it's a lot hassle free if you use a firm
like this. You can also get it done a lot faster. I think the cost is
around $500. My corporation is an S-corp.
Brian's suggestion about using QuickBooks is right on. However, you
may *also* want to have an accountant. I use QuickBooks and also have
an accountant. I find the accountant invaluable when it comes tax time.
Feel free to contact me if you want to discuss any details.
