How do I Make a Notice of Publication for a New Arizona LLC?
A newly formed LLC is required to publish a Notice of Publication in Arizona unless an exception applies. As of this writing, Arizona Revised Statute (A.R.S.) § 29-3201(G) requires "[w]ithin sixty days after the commission files the articles of organization, either of the following:
A notice of the filing of the articles to be published in a newspaper of general circulation in the county of the statutory agent's street address for three consecutive publications containing the information required in subsection B of this section. An affidavit evidencing the publication may be filed with the commission.
The commission shall input the information regarding the approval into the database as prescribed by Section 10-130 if the statutory agent's street address is in a county with a population of more than eight hundred thousands person."
This is an update to the old LLC law, as of this writing, that was effective as of January 1, 2017. As of this writing, the two counties with a population over eight hundred thousands persons in Arizona are Maricopa and Pima County. This means that if your statutory agent is located in Pima or Maricopa County a publication is effective by the publication by the Commission in their database and no newspaper advertising is required.
Thunderbird Law can act as a statutory agent for your LLC and is located in Maricopa County. Thus, there is no hassle or need to pay for advertising if you use Thunderbird Law
