Hire Us

Hire Us. Save Time. Protect Your Assets.

Matt Horwitz LLC University Founder

Hey there, thanks for your interest in hiring us :)

Although we teach people how to form LLCs in all 50 states, sometimes it’s nice to just pay someone else to do it, knowing there’ll be no mistakes.

Working with us will be refreshing:
• No upsells
• No hidden fees
• No confusing packages (no “gold”, “silver”, “bronze”)
• And no bullshit (corporate kits, seals, membership certificates, or any other expensive crap you don’t need)

We’ll give you one flat-rate that includes everything you need. Nothing left out :-)

To get started, select your state below!

We look forward to working together. If you have any questions, send us a message.

The newspaper must be located in the same county as your LLC’s Known Place of Business (it’s physical address in Arizona). Your ad must be published within 60 days of your LLC’s approval. We will take care of this for you, but you’ll be paying the newspapers directly. The average newspaper fees will be $60 – $120, and these are not included in our fees.

• Our LLC filing service is $329.

Please note:
• All California LLCs (regardless of income or activity) need to pay an $800 Annual Franchise Tax each year. If you’re thinking of forming an LLC out of state to avoid this fee, think again (see here and here). In short, this is the cost of doing business in California. We don’t file annual franchise tax, but we will send you detailed instructions in your Client File.
• The first payment is due the 15th day of the 4th month after your LLC is approved. Then it is due by April 15th each year.
• If you form an LLC late in the year, you have to pay franchise tax for that year (due the 4th month after the LLC is approved). So if you form your LLC in October, November, or December, you’ll owe a back-to-back payment (2 payments due within a few months). For this reason, if you don’t need your LLC open right away, wait until January to avoid this double payment.
• For more information on the annual franchise tax, please see this video.

NEW YORK LLC FILING SERVICE:

Your total costs in NY can vary widely, depending on what county your LLC is located in and whether or not you need use the newspaper publication strategy below.

All New York LLCs are required to publish ads in 2 newspapers for 6 consecutive weeks after the LLC is formed. Fees can vary from $90 upwards of $1,300, depending on the county where the LLC office is located. Yes, we agree, the NY LLC laws are quite ridiculous. Luckily we have a work-around that can save you up to $1,000.

We’re going to explain the brief overview below, but if you love details, feel free to also read section 206 of the NY LLC Code, or watch this video on our website.

Details of the Newspaper Publication Requirement:
As per section 206 of the NY LLC Code, all NY LLCs must publish an ad in 2 newspapers for 6 consecutive weeks. One newspaper must have a daily circulation and one newspaper must have a weekly circulation. After the ads run, the newspapers send back Affidavits of Publication (proof the ads ran). Those must be filed with the NY Department of State, along with a Certificate of Publication (the fee $50). This all must be done within 120 days of the LLC being formed.

If you live in an affordable county, newspaper fees can be $100 – $500. If you live an expensive county (anything near the city or in the 5 boroughs), newspaper fees will be $800 – $1,300. We strongly feel the newspaper requirement is crazy, but there is no way around it. It it the requirement for NY LLCs. To find the newspaper fees for your county, you need to contact your county clerk and ask for a list of approved newspapers. Then call 2 newspapers (one with a daily circulation and one with a weekly circulation) and ask how much on average it costs to run an LLC ad for 6 weeks. For more information, and for sample ad copy, please see our video .

Here is the newspaper publication solution we offer:
Since the newspapers you must publish in are dictated by the office address of the LLC, you can hire us as your Registered Agent in NY. This gives you access to our street address in Albany, which is the most affordable county, and you can use our office address as your LLC’s office address in order to publish your newspaper ads in Albany. Albany newspaper fees are $90. So the process is: we form your LLC in Albany, meet the newspaper publication requirement there, and then 1 month later, we change your address back to its original location. Yes, all this is a hassle, but this can save you a lot of money(upwards of $1,000).
