KY LLC certificate and an LLC operating agreement.
KY A Federal Tax ID EIN.
Kentucky Business Tax Registration (Business License)

In Hopkinsville, your LLC name is required to have the suffix "Limited Liability Company" or "Limited Company," or a suffix such as "LLC," "LC," "L.L.C.," or "L.C."

Before we file your LLC, we will search for your LLC name availability.

You may want to file for a name that you like to be reserved but that may cost more and in most cases you will not have to.

2. Obtain the LLC Articles of Organization

That is exactly how an LLC is created at the state level. You will need to register your Articles of Organization. In Hopkinsville, the articles of organization which are normally a couple of pages long, require that a registered agent is assigned.

3. Assign or be the Hopkinsville Registered Agent

A registered agent, in Hopkinsville, may be yourself if you are an one member LLC. The function of the agent is to receive service of process for any suit that might be filed vs your LLC.

4. An Operating Agreement is Required in addition to the Articles of Organization

The operating agreement is required in every state because you need it to open a bank account and also need to notarize it and keep it to prove that you are the owner of the LLC. As discussed, the articles of organization, i.e., the LLC certificate does not have the

5. Register for Other Licensing and Tax Registrations

EIN: All Hopkinsville LLCs must have an EIN. You may have heard that if you are the sole member and you treat your LLC as a disregarded entity, you may not need it. However, you cannot open an LLC business bank account without an EIN, so you do need it. In addition, If your LLC has more than one member, you must obtain the Federal Tax ID also called an Employer Identification Number (EIN). Of course, you also need an EIN if your LLC will be an employer, treated as a corporation or if it has more than one member.

Business License: A business license is a business tax registration separate from other tax or licesning registrations. An LLC needs a business license.

State Tax Registration: In some states, the department of revenue may want you to register and obtain a tax number as a general number to identify you for taxes. Otherwise, there are 2 State Tax IDs: an State Employer Tax ID SEIN and a Sales Tax ID also called

a seller's permit.

State Income Taxes: Most states, as well as the State of Kentucky, require you to file a income tax return for your LLC. You do that as you file the federal tax return. Each member must pay his share of taxes if the LLC is treated as a partnership even in the case that an owner resides in another state.

6. Registering as a Foreign LLC

In all states, if you are an LLC from another state, you will either have to register a new LLC in Kentucky or register as a foreign LLC. In both cases the fees are about the same and the same effect is effected.

Hi DiCompanytchs,

From sole propr., LLC, partneship or Corp.: Each requires an entity certificate filing.


All businesses/entities need a business license and an EIN.


Selling/Buying wholesale or retail requires a seller's permit.

LLC Benefits:
The main benefit is the pass throught taxation that may also help avoid employment taxes for sole member LLCs.
You should File an LLC because it is a one of the best ownership types.
You will have financial and civil liability protection from an LLC. For example an LLC judgment debtor can only seize LLC assets instead of your personal assets such as your individual personal bank account.
An LLC is more prestegious ownership than a mere sole owner such as John Deli as opposed to XYZ LLC.
Using an LLC name. The name should not be your name because it may entangle you in liability.
The LLC is the only entity that protects both your personal assets and business assets. For example if they sue the LLC they cannot access your personal assets. Likewise if they sue you the cannot access the LLC assets. Compare that to a corporation that while it protects your personal assets it does not protect your business assets. If someone sues you personally and you have a corporation the creditor can access the corporation shares and seize them.

Are there any restrictions as to the name of the LLC?
The name of a limited liability company must contain "limited liability company" or "limited company" or the abbreviation "L.L.C." "LLC" "L.C." or "LC". "Limited" may be abbreviated as "Ltd." and "company" may be abbreviated as "Co.

What happens after I set up an LLC. Am I an incorporated person?
Actually when you set up an LLC you set up a new legal person that exists independent of you. It has a birth certificate that is called an LLC certificate of its birth that is the filing of the articles of organization and a social security number that is called an EIN for LLC and it is federally issued. Its home is a physical address that has a registered agent to receive mail and service of process. An LLC can sue others and be sued. You are just a member owner of the LLC but not the LLC. Finally when you set up an LLC you incorporate your business not yourself.

How do I fund my LLC?
You can fund the LLC either as a capital contribution or a loan. Simply register the asset under the LLC name or simply deposit the cash in the LLC bank account.

What other tax IDs and License permits do I need for my LLC?
After you get the LLC articles, the operating agreement and the EIN, then you need a business license for your LLC business. Also if you sell taxable items you will need a seller's license ID and if you will hire anyone, you will also need a state employer ID number to pay employment withholding taxes to the state.

Can I form an LLC pay myself as an employer and then put myself on unemployement benefits?
No you cannot do that because state statutes prohibit owners from firing themselves and collecting unemployment.
Business LLC Registration Do I need a KY Limited Liability Company (LLC)?
When you start a Hopkinsville business You need to choose the tax and legal structure of the business. It can be a sole proprietor, a partnership or an LLC or Corporation. The you need to obtain the permits and tax IDs for the state of KY. KY LLC. A KY is a corporate entity created by filing an LLC certificate
at the KY secretary of state office.
In addition to a LLC, you may need a KY fictitious firm business name registration because it is required if you use a name other
than the registered LLC name as a business trade name.

Thus, a trade fictitious business name
registration is required if trading with a name other than
the llc or corporation name.

KY LLC vs. "S" Corporation.

As with an "S" Corporation, a limited liability company is like another company or neighbor. So for example if someone sues your neighbor and obtains a judgment against him, they cannot seize your house to satisfy the judgment because it is a judgment vs your neighbor. So an LLC is a shield against
creditors and lawsuits arising out of business transacions.
The llc will shield your personal assets such
as automobiles or homes. An LLC is more flexible but an "S" Corporation may help you save on employment taxes if you are self employed so long as you pay yourself a reasonable salary and then pay yourself dividents from the S corporation because dividents are not subject to employment taxes. KY Incorporation.

You can incorporate instead of setting up an LLC. A corporation can be either "S" or "C" as a business corporation. It is like a shield / veil against creditors
and lawsuits arising out of business transacions.
The corporation will shield your personal assets
such as your investments in a brokerage house and automobiles or homes. Also, note that if you incorporate or set up an LLC, you will not need to file for an assumed business trade name

As the majority of businesses, 99.9%, you will need an occupational business license even if you obtain a free LLC filing or you incorporate. In addition, you may need a federal tax ID number, and if you sell any merchandise, you will need a resale tax ID number. Also note that all LLCs need an occupational business license. Also, if the llc has more than one member, or you will file a tax return for the LLC as a corporation as opposed as a disregarded entity, you will need a federal tax ID number for the LLC.Starting a business fist step is to choose the tax legal structure. There are three major ones:1. Sole proprietor, 2. Partnership, and 3. Corporation or Limited Liability Company. All small, home or web based businesses as well as big businesses must choose and register as on of the above. In addition, businesses must obtain a business tax registration occupational license receipt. If selling any taxable items,a business must also get a reseller ID number to buy wholesale and sell retail. Finally, if a business is an employer, it needs to get a federal EIN and a State EIN.

Q:Why should I form an LLC to protect my assets since my business is operated through a website and it is unlikely that I will be sued.
A: You can be sued for many and any reason even if you only operate a business through a website..
Q:Anyway, I don't think they will ever have a lawsuit against me for just operating a website.

A:You can be sued for copyright infringment, contractual obligation and or defamation from materials you publish on your website so that is how an LLC protects you from lawsuits vs. your personal assets.
Q:What steps can I take to protect myself from business lawsuits?
A:The first thing to do to protect yourself is to set up an LLC. Then if you can afford it buy business insurance. Finally do not get into trouble by doing illegal things such as fraud etc.
Q:Do I have to be a member of an LLC to be its registered agent?
A:No anyone can be the registered agent because an agent is there to only receive mail and service of process in case you get sued. A registered agent must have a physical address. So you cannot use a PO box to be a registered agent.

I like to set up LLC for Real estate business. Rental properties? own houses that i rent? Need to set up LLC for this? How do i get started
1/11/2020 8:15 PM
Yes, setting up an LLC for rental properties is highly recommended due to the high probability of being sued by tenants.
Why set up an LLC?
An LLC offers asset protection and tax advantages.
LLC Asset Protection.
I think this is the great one that rental property or real estate owner investors should be convinced to form an LLC.
The usual liability liability that comes up with a rental property is if a tenant or a guest of a tenant slips and falls in the real estate premises and wants to sue you. As is the case these days, an that we are a sue happy society, people will sue for anything and as soon as someone knows or even suspects you own properties, you are a tempting target. If you aren’t protected in some way against people wanting to sue you, all of your personal assets such as your mansion and your Mercedes or BMW may be at risk if you are sued.

1. I have 2 properties I rent. I'd like these properties NOT to be able to go after my personal home,cars, bank accounts or the other home should there be a claim. Can 1 LLC do this or must each property be registered to a separate LLC?

3. Hi! How can I get a LLC license rental properties, newly built homes.

4. I am not selling merchandise, i am just renting houses. i am renting houses. what type of business license do i need.  what type of business license do i need to rent houses.
1/11/2020 6:24 PM
1. Yes, each property should be an LLC.   On the other hand, you can also do a series LLC where there is one LLC and the rest of the LLCs are under the main one and each has separate liability.  For example, the main LLC is not liable for the wrongs of the other LLCs in the series nor any LLC of the series is liable for the other LLC or LLCs.

The DBA takes about 3-5 business days.

Yes, you can get an LLC for newly build homes here online.

You need a license for each home you rent and then an LLC, EIN and a business license for the business of rental business.
