by Arizona LLC attorneys Richard Keyt, JD, LL.M. (income tax) and his son former CPA Richard C. Keyt, JD, MS

This book is intended for people who hired the Keyts to form their Arizona LLC or PLLC.  Even if we did not form your LLC you will find a lot of good information in this book about operating your Arizona LLC or PLLC.

We have formed 9,000+ Arizona limited liability companies since 2001.  We have 234 five star Google reviews and 354 five star Google, Facebook & Birdeye reviews.

We form new Arizona LLCs and PLLCs the same day we are hired and paid.  Our LLC packages are the Bronze for $497, the Silver for $897 (our most popular package) and the Gold for $1,397 (the confidential LLC).  See the contents of our three LLC packages and our LLC formation website.  To hire us to form an LLC or PLLC submit our formation questionnaire.

We do not charge for questions about forming Arizona limited liability companies. In talking to people and answering thousands of questions over and over about Arizona LLCs, we found that people ask the same questions about operating Arizona LLCs. This Operations Manual contains answers to the most commonly asked questions about forming and operating Arizona limited liability companies.

Section 1.1 Overview of the Operations Manual

We wrote this Operations Manual for two reasons:

a. To tell you important facts you need to know about operating your Arizona limited liability company, and

b. To reduce the amount of time we have to spend answering questions on the phone.

Reason number two may be selfish on our part, but do not forget reason one. If you have a question about operating an Arizona LLC (but not tax-related questions – see your CPA for the answers to tax questions), the answer is probably in this Operations Manual. If you have a question about Arizona LLCs that is not answered in this Operations Manual, call one of us, but before you do, please read the Operations Manual carefully and make sure the answer is not in it.

Section 1.2 Arizona LLC Law

This information contained in this Operations Manual applies only to Arizona limited liability companies. All fifty states in the United States have laws that allow for the creation of LLCs within each state, but each state has its own unique LLC laws. Some LLC laws of states other than Arizona may be similar to Arizona LLC laws, but you should never assume that is the case.

Your LLC must comply with the laws of each jurisdiction where it engages in activity. The application of the laws of another state to an Arizona LLC that does business in that state may give a result that is different from how Arizona law would treat the same fact pattern.

Section 1.3 The KEYTLaw Arizona LLC Law Website

Please visit and bookmark our Arizona LLC Law website. This site contains tons of additional information about asset protection and forming and operating Arizona LLCs.”

Section 1.4 Other KEYTLaw Websites

In addition to our Arizona LLC Law website we also have the following websites that contain a lot of information about each area of law:

  • Self Directed IRA LLCs:  Learn how to use an LLC to make self-directed investments with non-traditional assets such as real estate with your IRA funds.  Complete this questionnaire to hire us to form an LLC owned by your IRA account.
  • Family Asset Protection:  This free ebook explains Wills, Trusts, Living Wills, Healthcare Powers of Attorney, Financial Powers of Attorney and why you need to protect your loved ones before it is too late.  We wrote the book to help people understand a complex subject and illustrate how an estate plan can protect your most valuable asset – your loved ones.
  • Arizona Probate Law:  We explain what probate is, when it is needed and when heirs can avoid probate after a death and use one of Arizona’s small estate probate exemptions.  Submit our nonprofit corporation questionnaire to hire us to form an Arizona nonprofit corporation.
  • Buy Sell Agreements:  Learn why all multi-member LLCs (other than husband and wife owned LLCs) should have a Buy Sell Agreement. This document contains the members’ exit strategy in case they need a company divorce.  Complete our buy sell agreement questionnaire to hire us to prepare a buy sell agreement for your Arizona LLC.
