1. You should amend your Articles of Organization to include the names of the additional members.2. You will also need to amend your Operating Agreement to address the change in membership interests.3. You should file any amendment of your Articles of Organization with the Secretary of State.4. If you already registered your single-member LLC for an employer identification number and you chose the default pass-through tax status, then you must file Form 8832 with the IRS because adding members to your LLC changes the default tax status to a partnership.
