This checklist is a fine first step in completing the externalities of corporate formation. However, it is only the first step. There is a whole second step of issuing stock, appointing directors, holding a first meeting, electing officers, adopting bylaws, and a whole slew of internal items that should be on the check list as well. Most of these are forms that could be handled by a lay person as well, but you won't get any corporate liability protection without them. There are also annual meetings and such that are required to maintain the corporation. If you are serious about DIY incorporation do some research, you could probably find some good manuals out there with forms and everything.
