Hello. Let me see if I can assist. The least expensive and fastest way to set up a business as a domestic entity in NY (meaning that your principal place of business will be in NY) is to form and file for a corporation. Filing can be done online and it is only $125 to file articles of incorporation. If you will be operating in NY, you can act as your own registered agent.

Here's the fee schedule:

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
