C corp legal requirements?

I am planning to start a business and am considering a C corporation structure. I am looking for information on the legal requirements associated with setting up and operating a C corporation. I would like to know what documents I need to file, what taxes I will need to pay, and what other regulatory requirements apply.

Texas Secretary of State has a ton of helpful resources, including what documents to be filed, what taxes to be paid, and others. With regards to applicable law or which regulators your business will be subject to, you may want to discuss the nature of your business with your preferred counsel. You should also look into the duties/responsibilities of owning or holding a certain position in your company. There are also post-obligations or tasks that the company has to undertake after being registered, like adopting your Bylaws and naming your officers/directors/c-level executives.
