LLC costs and filing fees vary by state, here's a list of prices to setup an LLC in all 50 U.S. states...

LLC startup fees can be really confusing. This chart gives you all the important numbers, like: filing fees, annual report fees, and expediting options by state. Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico are included too.

All of the fees and costs represented here are just those required by the Secretary of State. Filing service and attorney fees’ are in addition to anything listed here.

Not all states offer the same services, for example Wyoming statute doesn’t currently allow for expedited formation processing – meaning all new formations get processed in the order they are received.

We’ve provided links to the Secretary of State website detailing the fees, if available. Similarly, if the fees are detailed (or elaborated upon) in a PDF then those links are available here as well.

You may notice some Expedited Fees don’t include a timeline, in most cases that is because the Secretary of State doesn’t provide one. 

Also, some states only offer expedited processing over-the-counter (OTC). That means that if you file online or by mail then processing is just via the normal queue. We didn’t note those details here, but it will be reflected during checkout if you file online with us.

Lastly, you may see that some states have a $0 fee for the annual report. That doesn’t mean that there’s no annual report, it’s just that there is no fee charged by the state to file.

If you see any information that is out of date, or inaccurate, please reach out to us here.

Common Questions

You may see that some states have different tiers of fees depending on method. For example, some charge more for filing by mail or fax than online.

There may be “convenience” fees added to any transactions for credit card payment methods.

And in some states, like Alabama, there may be additional fees for something call Probate Court (although, currently, Alabama is the only state that requires this).

Every state has its own policy here, some are set by statute and others are just procedures authorized by the Secretary of State.

Some states may not allow expediting at all, while others may limit expediting to in-person transactions only.

The table reflects expedited options regardless of restrictions or method. You may also notice that expedited costs may vary by entity type.

This table does not include expedited options and costs for annual reports. Occasionally, some states will offer expedited processing for these as well – usually the same states that impose late fees or penalties on reports filed after the deadline.

Many states will charge a recurring annual fee to file an annual report. This fee may be in addition to annual franchise tax or business privilege fees. 

This table does not reflect franchise fees, nor does it include initial report fees – which may be due within the first year of filing your new entity.
