More than two decades ago, when former Wall Street portfolio analyst Judith H. McQuown first sat down to write the inaugural edition of Inc. Yourself, the incorporation of a small company was a fairly simple procedure undertaken by relatively few refugees from the then-burgeoning safe haven of big-time corporate America. But while the appeal and the underlying need for striking out on one's own have increased markedly in the interim, the continual passage of major tax-law changes has ensured that incorporation is no longer such an uncomplicated process. Accordingly, in this ninth edition of her bestselling primer, McQuown still outlines the core information necessary to turn any enterprise into a separate legal entity replete with all of the rights, privileges, and liabilities that such a move entails. But she also updates those suggestions for today's small businesses whenever appropriate, and bolsters them with important details on newly available options for pension plans, organizing the venture, and sheltering its income from taxation. --Howard Rothman --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
"Inc. Yourself is an indispensable resource for the small business person. If you've recently left the corporate world to go into business for yourself, or if you're thinking of doing so, this book is a must."
--Stephen M. Pollan, author of Die Broke
"For close to two decades now, Inc. Yourself has been saving people lots of money and, even more important, lots of time--precisely at that stage of business development when you have little of either."
--George Gendron, Editor-in-Chief, Inc. magazine
"Whether you're a one-person band or a full orchestra, Inc.Yourself can help you strike out on your own."
--Sonya Donaldson, Home Office Computing

You will find everything in here including forms. Excellent book. Must read for all entrepreneurs.
McQuown does an exellent job explaining the various types of corporations and the incorporating process. You will find information on C-Corporations, S-Corporations and LLC's.
This book is a good primer. In addition I recommend Rich Dad's Guide to Owning Your Own Corporation, Loopholes and Form Your Own Corporation and Launch a Business in Any State by J.W.Dicks.
Another would be How To Incorporate in Any State: Everything You Need To Form a Corporation by W. Dean Brown.
On S Corporations, the best book I have found is S-Corporations by Robert Cooke.
Everyone that I know who is successfu in business is recommending these books. And for good reason, they work and are written by people who have actually been in the trenches and speak from experience.
Beware of certain [some] self publishers who have never had any real business experience and merely plagerizing the better authors such as those mentioned above.
The fact that Inc. Yourself is now in it's 9th printing with more than 500,000 copies in print should tell you something about the great work done by Judith McQuown and the popularity of this great work.
As a companion to Inc. Yourself, You'll want to pick up a copy of Launch Business and Incorporate in Any State by J.W. Dicks and/or How To Incorporate in Any State by Brown.
This book deserves a solid five star rating and is highly recommended.
I also recommend Form Your Own Corporation and Launch a Business in Any State and the Small Business Legal Kit, both by J.W. Dicks and Inc. and Grow Rich by C.W.Allen.
CAUTION: There are several books being put out by self publishers. These, some anyway are being promoted by paper tigers i.e. people who are writers only and have no real world experience. Much is outdated and the best of what they offer is in good quality books like this one and the others mentioned above.
Goff luck withyour business.
Now that I have read it, I agree and wholeheartily recommend it to anyone who wants to start a business and their corporation, correctly.
I want to caution you on the internet. There is some really bad advice with some people using the internet to hype their own books. Talk to someone you know who is in business. Check your local library and bookstore. HINT: If the book isn't available in the bookstores or your local library, it probably isn't worth your time.
If someone you know is a successful business person doesn't recognize a author, chances are the author is just a "paper tiger" with no real world experience.
I have not spoken with anyone who has not heard of Judith McQuown and everyone highly recommends her book.
