Forms & Agreements


Downloadable State LLC Forms

Following are the recommended state forms for organizing a limited liability company. Some of the forms must be printed out and filled in by hand, but most are fillable pdf forms that can be filled in on your computer. Several states also allow you to now fill in the required information directly into the state's electronic database. In a few cases, noted below, states do not have prescribed forms at all - you simply provide the information on paper in an acceptable format.

For most forms, you will need a copy of Adobe Reader or a similar pdf reader.
