Fast & Professional LLC Formations
Don’t Get Suckered into $50 Bargain-Basement Filings!
There’s over 100 places on the Internet offering “low cost” LLC formations. Who can you trust and what do you get for your money? Legalwiz has been in business for 18 years and has been on the Internet since 1998. We’re a name you can trust for accurate information and excellent service.
We offer upfront, straightforward, flat-free pricing, everything included, with no “cheesy” upgrades, useless service plans, or other inclusions you don’t need. Don’t get suckered into teaser pricing from the competitors, who offer $50 filings. The $50 filing is a BARE BONES service which does not include state filing fees, takes up to a month to process, and does NOT include everything you need to be in compliance with the law. These so-called “low cost” plans, once they bundle it all up, ends up with a price that is MUCH HIGHER than ours! Most of these companies sell you things you don’t need and, even worse, sell your information to other people.
Get the COMPLETE package of what you need, all-inclusive, with no hidden charges – FAST!

- Do You Sell My Information to Marketers? Absolutely not – we leave that to the other guys! We keep your information in-house only and will not spam you.
- Can You Advise Me on Where to Form My LLC? Most people form in their own state unless they are doing a series LLC or are a virtual company, in which case they file in Delaware or Nevada.
- Are You a Law Firm? No, we are a document service company filling in forms as a scrivener service. See disclaimer below.
- Which is Better, a Corporation or an LLC? That’s like asking, “Which is better, blue or green”? It depends on what you need. Most people use LLCs for passive investments like real estate and corporations for operating businesses, like a retail store or service. Talk with a qualified tax advisor before you proceed.
- How Long Does it Take to Receive My Documents? In most cases, you will receive everything by email within a week, unless you use expedited services, in which case it is a matter of days. Even though filing may be done quickly, some states have long delays in processing the paperwork to get the certificate of good standing.
- How Come You Charge More than XYZ.com? Most companies don’t quote you the full rate for their services until you fill in their forms and add all the services you need. Even worse, they bundle crap you don’t need and charge more. We offer flat-free pricing for everything you need – state filing, tax ID#, and an operating agreement, plus we include several bonuses you REALLY need, like a D&B number, minutes of meetings, business forms, and FAST, accurate service.
- Why Can’t I Just File My LLC Online with the State? The state filing is tricky, and even if you do it correctly, it’s just the beginning. Without an operating agreement you risk losing your business protection to creditors.
- Should I Use an Attorney Instead? The advantage of using an attorney is you can ask a lot of legal questions related to your business filing. The bad news is that it will cost you. If you know what you need, then our service may suit you fine. When it doubt, ask an attorney.
- What Are My Obligations Once I Setup an LLC? State law varies, but most states require annual filings online with a fee. You also may have to keep minutes of annual meetings, samples of which we provide in MSWord format. Depending on whether you file as a disregarded entity (single member) or as a partnership (multi-member), there’s also a state income tax return and a federal income tax return. You should definitely get a bank account and keep your books clean and separate from your personal and other business accounts, otherwise you risk losing your corporate protection in a lawsuit (called, “piercing the corporate veil”).
