how long does it take to form an llc well that entirely depends on what state you're filing in but first i'm not your attorney i'm not your cpa i am just providing generally obtain easily obtainable information on the internet you can google it anywhere i'm just trying to curate this one place where we can find all of this information without having to go to 1500 different websites which is essentially what i had to do so i'm doing this for you now what state are you forming in there is a video that talks about which state is best to form in long story short where's the work being done is it being done in texas you're probably gonna need a texas llc or corporation is it being done in new york maybe a new york one um you know a lot of people talk about delaware and wyoming nevada that's a whole different bag of worms can of worms bag of something anyway um we have a video regarding that but um check that out we also have a playlist on uh you know all this information kind of condensed in a really highly produced short video so also check that out there but um every because because llc's are not formed with the federal government it's not with the irs or the united states government it's formed on a state level so you have to form an llc in texas or in california or in tennessee or in wyoming and so you know once you've decided which state you're going to form in there really is a bunch of different answers to how long it's going to take uh generally the answer is one to five days there are a couple of states out there that are troublemakers it might take 12 to 22 business days but those are like two states i think it's arizona and alabama they're the two longest states by a wide margin texas for example is two days new york is instant you can get your new york llc from better legal actually in 11 minutes um we say an hour it should be about 11 minutes and it's during business hours so you know new york just has a different system than texas and texas has a different system than delaware in delaware you don't go online and fill out a form you fax the information in yes you still fax the information into delaware because they're so popular they just don't feel the need to update any of their systems um so delaware takes a handful of days and you got to wait for it to come in the mail whereas new york and texas sends it to you via email wyoming is another state that's instant there are 13 states that are instant but if you go to betterlegal.com you can actually go to our services page so betterlegal.com for slash services and plug in the state that you're looking for and that will give you the timetable on how long your state's gonna take but the general answer is that it's usually between one and three business days sometimes five business days the other caveat to that and this is not a better legal thing this is with everybody the caveat is that some states uh you know the state examiners are the ones that file this information and oftentimes in in florida and pennsylvania specifically they just fall behind so florida for example has state compliance that uh all piles onto one date and so they don't hire new people you know and i'm just this is conjecture i'm just assuming this is what happens so um if you work for the state of florida don't you know don't throw me under the bus um but you know they might not hire extra people because they don't have the budget their state government uh entity and so they might not have the budget to hire new people to handle all of the influx of uh state compliances that they have to get done while filing the the new ones and so uh some states might fall behind you know florida cranks out three business days like like normal but then every now and again it's 12 business days or pennsylvania is 15 business days or texas might fall behind or texas instead of doing two business days might be 24 hours it really just depends how long it takes the people uh doing it and so um in new york for example there aren't really any people that have to physically do this work to have to do the filing and that's why it's instant texas and delaware actually have physical people taking this information in delaware taking it from the fax machine and putting it into the computer and then it's in in the system so the states that are instant humans don't have to do anything it just gets done um but for the states that have this kind of manual process sometimes it does take a while um if they fall behind and so that's a caveat uh there so um i've answered that question hopefully um i didn't go into too much gross detail about this and i answer your question pretty uh succinctly and you got a little bit more context if you like this video and you like some more of our videos i

that it depends by state but usually a week or two you know it's not it's pretty quick to see llc it could be a couple days ah okay that's too quick the ein number is what takes a long time the ein number is can take up to two two months three months right now because the irs is behind it they just never made that a priority anymore yeah okay
Thanks touyeR your participation is very much appreciated
