How to form an S-corporation for an Internet Provider


If you are thinking about setting up an internet provider, it is important to understand how S-corporations work. The process of forming an S-corporation involves many steps and can be quite complicated. If you don’t follow all the rules and regulations, your business could end up with fines or penalties from the government or other agencies responsible for enforcing these rules. The good news is that you have already completed some of the hardest parts of this process: finding a location for your business and filing taxes as an independent contractor. Once those two were taken care of, it was just a matter of following some simple steps to form your corporation!

Get your EIN and verify that it is correct

Once you have your EIN, you can use it to open a bank account, apply for business licenses and permits, and make other important business transactions. Make sure that the information on your tax return and in other documents matches the information on your employer identification number (EIN) application. The IRS uses this information to verify that a company is operated by an individual or partnership rather than by some other registration method such as a limited liability corporation (LLC).

Use the online filing system to file a master business license application

  • Be sure to select the correct business entity form.
  • Include all required information in your application, such as your company name, principal office address, and tax identification number.
  • Pay any applicable fees.

Gather fees and file a business license

This can be done at the state level and is often done online. You will also need to pay a fee for this service.

You then need to file an application for a federal tax ID number for your business entity. A DBA (doing business as) name, such as “S T Corp” or “S R Corp,” must also be filed with your local government office in order for them to recognize that you are conducting business under that name.

Once these steps have been completed, your S-corporation is ready to become officially recognized by both federal and state governments!

Fill out the Articles of Incorporation forms

They include information about the company’s name, purpose, and location, as well as a few other details. The article must be signed by each member of your board of directors (if you have one) or by yourself if there is no board.

When filling out these forms, make sure the information is accurate and complete:

  • Use only legal names for individuals involved in the business; don’t use nicknames or variations on first names like “Billy Bob” or “Bobby Joe.”
  • If someone has been convicted of a crime that could affect their ability to run an internet provider service business (like embezzlement), say so in writing on this form. You can also list any other criminal charges they’ve been involved with during recent years if this applies—but remember that even minor infractions may come up at some point when applying for loans or other financing options down the line!

Mail forms to the Secretary of the State Office

  • Mail the articles of incorporation to the address listed on the website of your Secretary of State’s office.
  • If you are mailing from a different state, you may have to mail to a different address.
  • Check the website for any additional information regarding how your S-corporation will be formed and its ongoing requirements during this process.

File an Application for a Certificate of Authority

  • Pay the fee.
  • Submit the application, along with any other required documentation and the fee to the Secretary of State’s office in your state.
  • Wait for approval from your state’s Department of Revenue before proceeding with further steps in forming your corporation (if applicable).
  • Receive your Certificate of Authority by mail once approved by your state’s Department of Revenue (the address you submitted when filing will be printed on this document).

Receive Approval from the Secretary of State

If you want to form an S-corporation for internet provider, you need to file a Certificate of Authority and an Application for Certificate of Authority with the Secretary of State.

You also have to file Articles of Incorporation, Master Business License Application, and your EIN (Employer Identification Number).

It will take some time to form your S-corporation

It can be a long process. You have to make sure you are following all the rules and being careful. Be patient as it can be daunting at times.


Following these steps will help you set up your S-corporation, but it is important to remember that there are many different factors that can affect how long it takes for your corporation to be formed. Most of the time this process takes at least a week or two, but it can take longer depending on the state where you live and other factors like having errors or needing more information from you. The best thing to do if something goes wrong is to reach out directly to someone who can help get things back on track quickly so everything doesn’t fall behind schedule!
