Arizona LLCs in Maricopa & Pima County

If your LLC’s Arizona Statutory Agent has an address in Maricopa County or Pima County, you don’t have to fulfill the LLC publication requirement.

This exception to the rule comes from House Bill 2447, which amended Section 10-130 of the Arizona LLC Act.

How it works:

The Arizona Corporation Commission takes care of the LLC’s requirement to “notify the public” by publishing a notice on their website.

This notice is posted on the AZCC Public Notice Database page.

You don’t have to pay any fees in order to get published on the AZCC website. The state does this for free. Again, but only for LLCs with a Statutory Agent address located in Maricopa County or Pima County.

If your LLC’s Statutory Agent address is located in any other county, you still have to fulfill the LLC publication requirement.

If you’re not sure what county your Arizona Statutory Agent is in, you can enter their address in this tool to find out: Map Developers: what county am I in.

Arizona Corporation Commission Contact Info

If you have any questions, you can contact the Arizona Corporation Commission (AZCC) at 602-542-3026.

Their hours are 8:00am – 5:00pm, Monday through Friday.
