Welcome to JustAnswer! My name is ***** ***** I will be able to assist you today.

The first step in creating an LLC in the state of Arizona is to check for name availability. You may reserve your name with the state for free or online, which includes a $10 filing fee and $35 for expediting the process.

"Reserving a corporation or LLC name for an online fee has the advantage of immediately securing the name for 120 days so no one else can have it. Reserving the name is ***** ***** does not create the entity. The entity name is ***** ***** 120 days. "

Ask Your Own Tax Question

After settling on a name for your LLC you may complete the filing online for a fee of $50. Below is the link to apply online.

If your entity is based in Arizona then you have completed the necessary paperwork to form an LLC.

Ask Your Own Tax Question

To form a LLC you do not need an independent EIN, however you can receive an EIN specifically for your LLC

As a solely owned LLC you would be considered, by default, a disregarded entity and therefore profit and losses would flow through to your personal tax return.
