So now it’s time to form the LLC. I start the process on the State of Tennessee website and quickly get a reject message stating the address is not in the system… sigh. I call the state business office to let them know the address is new and I need to use it. They aren’t much help. They just tell me I have to be in the USPS database. I called the post office in Hurricane Mills to have them put me in. Not much help there either. They just pass me off to the Waverly Post Office. Waverly has to send someone out to verify the address??? I thought that was already done by the 911 office… exasperation. Why wouldn’t the post office just do it to begin with? Whatever. I wait a few more days and finally call back to check the progress. Lonnie tells me it has been verified and they have submitted it to the national database but has no idea how long it takes to update… gees. Wait, wait, wait. I finally called the national USPS help line to get things moving. After plenty of time and patience they finally break and put it in for me, but I did have to promise to have a mailbox up within a week. That’s fair. Back to the LLC formation. I suppose the State of Tennessee doesn’t get in a hurry updating their system because I waited for a week and still no luck. Back to sweet talking, I called and explained over and over with the worker until she gave me to her supervisor. Eventually we overrode the system error and got me listed- WHEW!
The wheels of progress turned slow, and without some pushing and pulling I would still be waiting on my address but we finally got it taken care of. Drum Roll Please… 16520 Bakerville Road, Hurricane Mills, TN!!! Unfortunately Google still thinks I am located in Waverly somewhere up the road. It will take some time but Google knows everything- they will figure it out soon.
