Starting a Mississippi LLC
A Mississippi 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 Mississippi Certificate of Formation with the Mississippi Secretary of State and wait for your LLC to be approved.
The state filing fee is $50. When you file online, your LLC will be approved in 1-2 business days. (Mississippi doesn’t allow LLC formations to be filed by mail anymore, only online.)
Note: Filing times may take longer due to the current global situation and government delays. Please see how long does it take to get an LLC in Mississippi.

After your Mississippi LLC is approved, complete your Mississippi LLC Operating Agreement and get your Mississippi EIN Number (aka Federal Tax ID Number) from the IRS. Next, check whether your company needs a Mississippi Business License or other permits to operate.
In order to keep your Mississippi LLC in compliance, you need to file a Mississippi LLC Annual Report each year. The fee is $0. And every year, your small business must file any required Mississippi LLC Taxes. We recommend hiring an accountant for help.
