How to Form an LLC in Minnesota

How to Form an LLC in MinnesotaA Minnesota 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 Minnesota is simple. Search your Minnesota LLC name in the state database and select your Registered Agent.

File your Articles of Organization with the Minnesota Secretary of State and wait for your LLC to be approved.

You can file your LLC by mail or you can file it online. If you file by mail, the fee is $135 and the approval time is 4-7 business days. If you file online, the fee is $155 and the approval time is immediate.

After your Minnesota LLC is approved, complete your Operating Agreement and get your Federal Tax ID Number (aka EIN) from the IRS.

In order to keep your Minnesota LLC in compliance, you need to file an LLC Annual Renewal each year. The fee is $0.
