A Montana LLC with our price will cost you:
A Montana LLC costs $75.00 to file with the Montana Secretary of State.
It will take about 1 week to get processed by the State, or 1 day if you pay an extra $70.00 priority fee, or an extra $100.00 for an expedite 1 hour service fee. When you pay us to file your Montana LLC with the 1 hour service that means you’ll be done in 1 hour!
We have an account with the State, so we can file the custom drafted Montana LLC articles of organization we prepare for you immediately upon signing up here. If you are in a super hurry and want to pay the State's extra $100.00 one hour fee, you'll literally have the file stamped Montana LLC articles of organization and an active Montana LLC in 1-2 hours.

Montana has no sales tax, thus a lot of people form Montana LLCs to hold assets they purchase and avoid the sales tax. For more on vehicle licensing, see our Montana RV LLC Service.
Generally speaking, people that form Montana LLCs as holding companies are not trying to take advantage of gains or losses on their taxes, and thus, aren't concerned with filing tax returns or income tax percentages. If you don’t have any income to report from a Montana LLC, there’s nothing to report on a Montana net income tax return.
- A Montana LLC is the simplest way for a person to start a business in Montana. You pull the money in, you pay for things when you need to, you pay for personal things when you need to, etc… Now lawyers and accountants aren’t going to want to hear that, but let’s face it. It’s your first year in business and you need to pull in as much money as possible. Pull it in, and pay the accountant to deal with it at the end of the year! The next year after you get things going, you can pay yourself a wage. One of the important things for new LLCs is to make sure you keep things as separate as possible between the business and you personally. You want to avoid mingling personal items and business items and expenses as much as possible. When you need money from your new Montana LLC, write the check from the Montana LLCs checking account to you personally, and put it in your personal account. Don’t go paying for a movie or new canoe with the businesses money. Write a check to yourself from the business and pay for personal things with personal money. We see so many businesses fail, because people spent too much time worrying about the small details instead of focusing on the main thing in starting a business… PULL THE MONEY IN!!
- Montana LLCs have to file annual reports with the Secretary of State every April 15th. They cost $15 and are basically just an informational update opportunity. They will take you about 5-10 minutes to file on the Montana SOS website. As your Montana registered agent, we send you reminders and notices about this each year. We can also file this on your behalf if you would like. There are helpful links in your online account showing you where and how to file the MT annual report.
