Good afternoon. First, you want to file a Certificate of Formation with the Secretary of State. You can do this on line at the Secretary of State website: http://www.sos.state.tx.us/Corp/sosda/index.shtml. Second, you will want to prepare an Operating Agreement setting forth the terms and conditions of your LLC operations..such as purpose, contributions, allocations of income and loss, distribution of cash, management, voting rights, and rights to transfer interests. Third, you will need to obtain an EIN (i.e., Taxpayer Identification Number) from the IRS. You can do this on line in about 10 minutes for no charge at the following IRS website: http://www.irs.gov/Businesses/Small-Businesses-&-Self-Employed/Apply-for-an-Employer-Identification-Number-(EIN)-Online.

Do I need to file an application for reservation of an entity name through the Texas Secretary of State website?

No....because you can simply file the Certificate of Formation. It will get filed and preserve the name for you.
