What Does It Cost to Start An LLC In Texas?

August 31, 2021

State of Texas LLC Filing Fee: $300 + LLC Formation Package with Attorney Nathaniel Gilbert: $900

To form your Limited Liability Company in Texas requires a $300.00 filing fee with the State of Texas Secretary of State.  Legally speaking, this is all that is technically required to form your LLC.  However, there may be other costs if you are considering actually running or growing your business.

Performing an “Exact Name Search” on the Secretary of State’s website is always advisable before forming your LLC.  This essentially ensures you are not naming your business the same as another business already registered in the State of Texas.  Additionally, you should run a search for everything similar to your name—If your business is “Nate’s Texas Butcher Shop,” you might also consider searching for “Nate’s Butcher”, “Texas Butcher Shop”, and “Nate’s Butcher.”  You would hate to grow your business for a year only to find out it is being confused with another shop across the state.  Each search runs approximately $1, so let’s assume about $7.00 in Name Search Fees as well.
