What Filings ( Papers ) Are Required To Form An Limited Liability Company, LLC ?

In order to create an LLC, articles of incorporation first need to be filed with the Secretary of State or similar government agency. Next, the LLC members need to enter into an operating agreement which sets forth the rights of the members and the rules for running the company. An LLC may also need to apply for a tax identification number with the IRS.
