Create an LLC in Texas

Creating an LLC in any state is relatively straightforward assuming you have the proper information. There are a few steps you need to take to do it properly, and some documents you'll need to share and sign with your partners, if applicable. This is a simple curation of everything you'll need. The cost to set up an LLC in Texas is $300. You can do it completely online, or you can go to your local County Clerk's office and take care of everything there. Personally, I think it's much easier to do it online, unless you have specific questions that you need answered.
