Form a Domestic Arizona LLC – Articles of Organization (Form L010.002)

Form an Arizona LLC, in accordance with § 29-632 (the requirements for filing an LLC in Arizona). This is for standard for-profit LLCs operating in the state of Arizona. To file for a domestic entity in Arizona (domestic refers to the business being original to Arizona) complete the Articles of Organization by one of two methods. The options include the eFile method and the PDF Paper Articles of Organization method. Both methods have filing fees of $35 and can be expedited at a cost of $50.

 

How to Form

Step 1 – Before an individual can apply for a Domestic LLC in the state of Arizona, he or she must ensure the name of the LLC is available. To check to see if the name is available or if any similar names exist, head to the Arizona Corporation Commission Search Page and enter the desired LLC name. This step may need to be repeated if the LLC names searched are already in use.

Step 2 – Next, begin the process of filing your entity with the State of Arizona. For Domestic LLCs, two filing options are available. The applicant has the choice of either filing online using the eFile method or by filing using the Paper Articles of Organization. Both methods cost $35 to file and include the option to be expedited at a cost of $50.
