LLC Fees - Ultimate State-by-State Resource For All LLC Fees - Filing, Recurring, and Other Fees

Discover this ultimate breakdown that shows you all the different LLC fees state-by-state. Visit us now to learn more.

What is an LLC Filing Fee?

  • A one-time fee paid to the state is called the filing fee of LLC.
  • This is not a monthly fee. No state has a monthly LLC fee system.

What is a Recurring Fee?

  • A mandatory recurring fee that is paid directly to the state every year (annually) or every other year (biennially).
  • This is to keep your LLC in good standing!
  • In most states, if you do not pay this recurring fee, your LLC will get shut down.

Important Note: Lower Fees Does Not Mean You Should Form in That State!

At a high level:

  • If you are non-US resident you can choose any state to form your LLC in. For non-US residents, the two most popular states we've seen for forming an LLC is Wyoming or Delaware and you can read a nice guide here which compares the pro's and con's of forming in each state!
  • If you live in the US, it makes the most sense to file an LLC in the state in which you live in / reside in. If you choose a state that isn't your home state where you reside, then, you might have to do what is called a domestic LLC filing and a Foreign LLC filing which would require you to pay for and effectively maintain the costs = 2 LLCs!
  • However, at the end of the day, it's your business, your choice!
