    Trying to get all my ducks in a row before I dive into this. I have the equipment part narrowed done, now I need opinions on the legal business side. As an owner/operator should I form an LLC to keep the business separate from my personal finances or is that unnecessary? Also, should I talk to a CPA now, before I start, or wait until closer to tax time? I know there are things I'm not thinking of, so any other help would be appreciated.

    You should have been talking to a cpa and a lawyer from the beginning.

    What you are going to be driving may have a bearing on whether or not incorporating will be beneficial to you.
