What documents are needed for LLC formation?

I am looking to form a Limited Liability Company (LLC) for a business venture that I am starting. I have done some research into LLCs and have a basic understanding of the process, but I am looking for more information and guidance on the specific documents that are required for the formation of an LLC.

At a bare minimum, an LLC requires: 1. Articles of Organization. (These must be filed with the secretary of state.) 2. An Operating Agreement (This document lays out how the LLC is to be managed and maintained.) 3. An Employee Identification Number from the IRS. (Needed to open a bank account, file taxes or to pay employees.) Please feel free to reach out if you have any further questions. Frank Venis
