How to Form an LLC in Michigan

How to Form an LLC in MichiganA Michigan 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 Michigan is simple. Search your Michigan LLC name in the state database, file your LLC Articles of Organization and pay the state filing fee ($50).

After your Michigan LLC is approved, complete your Operating Agreement, obtain a Federal Tax ID Number, and file your Annual Report (see Lesson 2 video at 7m 42s).
