The selection of an agent is not as casual as implied from Andrew's
posting. It is difficult to put enough stress on the importance of using
someone reliable enough to always forward the mail. Also, individual
agents become po'd, get sick, die and move. In such event you must
notify the proper department in the state of incorporation about the
change of address, or agent. Consider a service to serve as your agent.
They usually charge a nominal amount and also give you updates about
changes in the law that may affect you.

The reasons for incorporation in Delaware, two of them being: speedy
processing of Bankruptcy chapter 11 cases; and easier to screw minority
shareholders, don't usually apply the single or two shareholder
corporation. You are usually much better off incorporating in the state
where you will be doing business. Also, discuss the "S" election with
your advisor to avoid dual taxation. My personal preference is to form a
Limited Liability Company. You get insulation from liability while being
taxed as a partnership. Consult your advisor.
