How to Form an LLC in Idaho
An Idaho 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).
File your LLC Certificate of Organization ($100-$120) and wait 7-10 days for approval (unless you pay $20 extra; then approval is 3-4 days). Your Certificate of Organization can only be filed by mail, as Idaho does not have online LLC filing yet.
In order to keep your Idaho LLC in compliance, you’ll also need to file an Annual Report ($0) every year.
We’ve created a free course that will walk you through forming your own Idaho LLC, step-by-step.
