File the Articles of Organization
The state government will not acknowledge your new company as a legal entity until you have filed the required documents. These can be done through the Secretary of State, online or on paper. Once you have filed them then you are officially an LLC!
For compliance purposes, all LLCs are required to file an Annual Report with the state. This report contains information about your company’s structure, profits, and officers. It needs to be filed in order to keep your LLC active and IRS-compliant.
