LLC FEES STATE-BY-STATE COMPARISON CHART

This LLC state comparison chart shows filing and annual fees for each state and the District of Columbia. State LLC filing fees are the initial fee that you pay to the state for formation of your limited liability company (LLC). Most states charge an annual fee or tax to maintain your LLC. This LLC state filing fee comparison chart includes LLC annual fees as well. Some states require that an annual report be filed as well. There is no one "best state for LLC formation". There are many factors that go into determining the best state to form your LLC. However, Delaware is very popular because of its Chancery Court; large case body of law; and a fast, efficient Division of Corporations. Delaware has an annual fee of $300. Delaware does NOT require any annual reporting for LLCs. We specialize in Delaware formations, but we can setup and incorporate your company in any state. These fees do not include DBI processing/service fees. Our Delaware registered agent fee is $100 ($120 for non-US billing address). Our registered agent fee for all other states (not Delaware) is $165. The corporation comparison chart is here.
