Go to the Secretary of State’s web site at www.state.tn.us/sos. Then you search for “Business” and “For Profit” and then “Forms”. The form you want to select is “Charter”. You can actually fill in this PDF form and print it out, though you can’t save the completed form to your computer. You mail the completed form to the Secretary of State’s office with the $100 filing fee and that will get you started.
