Question by Tom C: How should I go about starting a small, home based, business in Illinois?
I want to start my own computer repair business and want to do it legit, with taxes and everything. First off, should I make myself an LLC? Also, what forms should I fill out? As I’m sure is the case with every state, the operators at the state’s 800 number are not helpful or knowledgable. Thanks for your help!

Go to http://www.score.org/index.html and in the upper left hand corner, enter your zip code. On the next screen, you will get information in the nearest SCORE chapter. Call them and arrange for a free meeting with a SCORE counselor to discuss starting your computer repair business.
