I looked at LegalZoom and then went and downloaded the forms from our State site. I found that the State of NC has a great Website for Corporations filing with very easy instructions. In NC, the form is only about 3 pages long and the questions are very straight-forward. I saved myself about $600 that Legal Zoom would have charged me for an S-Corp by doing it myself in about an hour (most of that time was learning the terminology). I consulted an accountant prior to filing to determine the best means of filing and then went from there.
I don't know about the LLC, but if you file the S-Corp (tax advantages) make sure you file with the IRS after you receive your letters of incorporation. Very important. Your bank willa leo want your Letters of Incorporation and your LLC papers for opening a bank account (a requirement with S-Corp for keeping your finances separate). Of course, see a lawyer as well. They can steer you the best direction. There is also a thread on this topic in one of the other forums.
