Arizona Limited Liability Company: Articles of Organization

Name of the LLC

Forming an Arizona Limited Liability Company requires the selection of a name that is not in use by any business entity in the state. After you choose the name for your company, you can file it. Note that it is not required to reserve the name because once you get permission for filing the name will automatically be reserved.

Business License and Permits

The state of Arizona requires business license and permits from the owners of a business organization. This business license gives you permission to conduct your business in the state following the state laws and business principles.

Employer Identification Number (EIN)

In Arizona, it is required to have an Employer Identification Number (EIN) for identifying your business for tax purposes. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) also issues a Tax Identification Number (TIN) to identify your tax payments. The minimum fee to file a Tax Identification Number in Arizona is $75.

Transaction Privilege Tax Licenses

If you believe your LLC will be engaged in an activity that is taxable under the transaction privilege tax statutes of Arizona, you need to apply for a transaction privilege tax license. To do this, you must file an Arizona joint tax application, which will also provide you an Arizona withholding number and Arizona unemployment number for tax benefits.
