How to Form an LLC in ArizonaAn Arizona Limited Liability Company (LLC) is a legal structure used to protect your personal assets (home, car, bank account) in the event your business is sued.

An LLC can be used to operate a business, or an LLC can be used to hold assets (such as real estate, vehicles, boats, or aircraft).

Forming an LLC in Arizona is simple. Search your Arizona LLC name in the state database and select your Statutory Agent.

File your LLC Articles of Organization ($50) with the Arizona Corporation Commission and wait for approval.

After your Arizona LLC is approved, complete your Operating Agreement and get your Federal Tax ID Number from the IRS.

And finally, file your Notice of Publication in a local newspaper for 3 runs to meet the Arizona Publication Requirement.

    Hello Matt. From what I am reading it’s best to form the LLC in the state the property is in.

    Our scenario. We live in Indiana but have purchased property in Arizona as an investment property not a second residence.

    Thank you,
    Sally Carlton

      Hi Sally, yes, that is correct. The LLC should be formed in the state where the property is located since that is where you are legally doing business. Hope that helps.
