Registering a business in Texas--how?

Recommended Posts

1.  Sean and I got the Escapees mail and 'domicile' address set up. 
2. Then we went online to the Polk county clerk (Livingston) and downloaded the 'Assumed Name' form, printed it, filled it out, got it notorized, and mailed it to the county clerk's office with a check for $26. 
3.  When we get the certificate back from them, we can then take it to a bank and get an account set up with that Assumed Name, checks, etc.

Forming a business in Texas, there are several ways.  As a Texas business owner, both from prior to our RV life and still, currently, as full-time RVers, I'll tell you it's not very difficult.

You can use something like LegalZoom if you want to pay a little extra and have them manage it all.  Otherwise, it's just a matter of filling out the forms.  For small biz, I suggest LLC, but your scenario may be different.  You can find the forms here:


Just a note, too, you'll need to file with the Texas Comptroller each year saying "I didn't make over a million dollars" basically (unless you did).  There are certainly more tax implications, requirements, etc. but these are the basics to get you going.  Disclaimer: I'm not a lawyer, accountant, tax person, none of those things.  Please utilize your best resources to protect yourself.

Good luck!
