California Temporarily Waives LLC Initial Filing Fees

  • October 30, 2022

Effective until June 30, 2023, California is waiving the traditional $70 filing fee to form a California Limited Liability Company, or “LLC.” The Processing Fee is now $0.00. The processing fee is waived for submissions submitted July 1, 2022 through June 30, 2023.

Note: – The annual minimum $800 tax to the California Franchise Tax Board remains due and is not subject to the processing fee waiver.

A $70 savings from the State of California to businesses is rare – or anything making it easier to do business in the State of California for that mater – so if you are forming an LLC in this timeframe, enjoy this modest business friendly benefit.
