LLC Form

LLC Form

Forming an LLC (limited liability company) is not as hard as most people think. Here are the steps you need to take to make your LLC a legal reality.

  1. Choose an available company or business name that complies with your state's LLC rules.
  2. File proper paperwork, usually called articles of organization, and pay the filing fee (ranging from about $100 to $800 approximately, depending on each state's rules).
  3. Generate an LLC operating agreement, which make rules and responsibilities of the LLC members.
  4. Publish a notice of your plan to form an LLC (required in only a few states).
  5. Obtain licenses and permits that may be required for your business.

Filing Fees

One Drawback of forming an LLC instead of a partnership or a sole proprietorship is that you'll have to pay a filing fee when you submit your articles of organization. In most states, the fees are reticent -- typically around $100. A few others take a bigger bite: California, for example, charges an $800 annual tax on top of its filing fee.
