Hello, yes, you will have to get a new EIN# ***** the newly formed LLC. Each legal entity needs its own number and it will be required by the IRS. For the bank account, you just open a new business account for the LLC and transfer the funds over to it. (The bank may let you transfer ownership of the account itself, but you will have to check with your bank). For the DBAs, if they are registered with your State's Secretary of State, you just need to update the registration to reflect that the DBAs are now used by the LLC. Hope that helps! Good luck.
If you have no income and no expenses or any other tax deductions you want to claim then you will not need to file a 2015 tax return, unless you elect to have the LLC taxed as a corporation which I am guessing you do not want. If the LLC is taxed as a corporation, then you will need to file a return regardless.
Yes, that is not a problem. And by the way, I mean a C-corp when I say corporation. An s-corp is still a "pass-through" tax entity, so there would also not be a problem making your election in Dec.
That is correct!
