First it's important to decide what type of business structure is the most appropriate for your business. Look at the Nevada's Department of State's Web site for detailed forms, instructions, and information on business incorporation in Nevada. It is advisable to consult an attorney and/or a tax advisor for help when setting up a corporation.
It depends on what kind of business structure you have chosen. Corporations and Limited Partnerships must register with the Nevada's State's Department of State. Partnerships and Sole Proprietors doing business under a name other than their own (D.B.A.) are required to register at the County Clerk's Office in the borough where the business is located. Sole proprietors who are doing business under their own name are not required to file with a County Clerk.
Information about forms, application fees, filing electronically, and legal issues can be found at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office web site.
