LLC Laws by State

The table below shows the LLC laws (LLC Acts) for every state.

All 50 states: Limited Liability Company Acts

LLC laws by state

Most states have their LLC laws broken into 3 sections:

  1. State body of law
  2. Main title
  3. LLC Act

However, some states have their LLC laws broken into 4 sections:

  1. State body of law
  2. Main title
  3. Subtitle
  4. LLC Act

Of course, there are other subtle differences in how the states structure their laws.

What does it mean if a column is empty?
This means the state has their LLC laws broken into only 2 sections.

What if there is no clickable link?
If there is no clickable link in the table, it means that section of the state legislation doesn’t have a direct link. Look at its parent elements (the columns to the left), click the parent element link, and then navigate to the desired section.
