Quick question...I had been looking into the prepaid legal route for my legal needs...and I am wondering if anyone knows if I can use these types of services for my registered agent when I am filing for incorporation!?

I was checking out your website...I am in Oregon...and I am starting anon-profit...do the same rules apply!?
Thank you so much for the information! I have been endlessly reaing the IRS documents regarding 501(c)3...I also got to talk with TJ regarding this and he explained some of the differences between 501(c)3 and (c)4. I do have the applications for both state and federal filing...but I assumed (wow...here is where I should get a swift kick in the behind) that I was just not educated in this area anough to do it on my own (shame on me...BAD LEAH!!!). After spending the weekend reading all this stuff...I am just not sure what the heck I was thinking...Thank you both Bianca and Richard for letting me know I can be my own RA though...I haven`t found anywhere in this paperwork that says I can do that...so that is nice to know!
I meet with a gentleman from SCORE again on friday to go over the finer points fo non-profiting...so hopefully he can fill in the blanks regarding Oregon law specifically!
Not sure...does that answer your question better!?
Also...if I am understanding you correctly...and I apologize if I read your post wrong...the services we are supplying are for the families of these special needs individuals. We provide resource information, support information, funding resource information etc. Providing these services to a business wouldn`t be very beneficial to them. Not to mention, our services allow the doctors to direct their patients to us...so it frees up their time for focusing on their patients medical needs instead of having to research this information for their clients. If we offered the services to the doctors themselves...then they would still have to facilitate the contact with us...then make sure the information got to their patients...it seemed like less work for the doctors involved if they could just hand their clients a brochure that told them who to go to for help finding information.
Ultimately though...the idea behind this venture is not so much to make me tons of money...yes...I want to be able to pay my bills...but in the end...I want to make sure there is somewhere these parents can go for reliable information without the struggle and frustration of searching endlessly for it themselves. Think of Google or Yahoo...only cleaner...specialized...and not-for-profit! Think of SCORE...that is what I want to be...only to the special needs community...not small business start-ups!
I don`t know much about taxes...which is obviously your expertise...so I really value this input! Thank you so much! Keep it coming.
IF that doesn`t work out though...we will be going ahead and filing as a 501(c)3 to start...hmmm...potentially a 501(c)4 depending on what direction we decide to take...but I do understand that any unrelated business expenses/profits would be taxable regardless of my status.
