I know the practice is legal. I can do so with a timber contract but my question is, can I form an LLC for this. It would make it much easier to market my services and also to keep up with monies for tax purposes. Thank you.
Based on the limited information available, I think setting up an LLC would be a wise move for you. If you are the only owner of this enterprise, you would incorporate as a sole-member LLC, and you would file a Schedule C along with your 1040. The attached schedule would show in detail your profits and losses, including deductible business expenses. I strongly recommend that you hire a local business lawyer to advise you more thoroughly on the corporate governance aspects of an LLC, and also to draft a proper LLC operating agreement, to enhance your limited liability protection. Limited liability protection, rather than tax purposes, is your chief benefit in incorporating as an LLC. Best wishes to you in this endeavor.
