I actually “organized” my business – that is the word used for forming a limited liability company. The reasons are simple, the LLC is useful because most of the organizational rules are brought about by agreement of the members not by the dictates of state law on incorporation. Say, one member wants to own 90% of the business but only receive 10% of the annual earnings. This can be done by writing that into the Operating Agreement for an LLC, but to do the same thing with a corporation would require an amendment of the Articles of Incorporation or Certificate of Incorporation, depending on the state.
