Registered Agent Service in Illinois

Info your IL registered agent should help you know and understand:

  • If you’re going to make a filing with the Illinois Secretary of State, you will have to submit the filing with an original inked signature, and one photo copy to get returned to you. Your registered agent does not need to sign the filing. The only filing you can make online is a domestic corporation, and you can assign a registered agent in Illinois through that process. You will need to pay with a certified check for the filing fees. Illinois is the only state in the U.S. that makes you pay this way.
  • Illinois corporations cost $150 to file plus a minimum $25 franchise tax. You must designate a registered agent in Illinois for service of process and statutory requirements. You must also designate a registered agent in Illinois for LLCs.
  • Both domestic Illinois LLCs and foreign LLCs cost $500 to file, one of the highest in the country.
  • Foreign entities must submit a certified copy of the articles of incorporation or organization and any amendments. This certification cannot be older than 90 days. You do not need a certificate of good standing or existence.

We provide registered agent service through our Schaumburg, IL office in Cook county.

They are due before the 1st day of the anniversary month you filed in. The notices come out 6 weeks prior to the due date. They cost $75 plus a minimum $25 franchise tax for corporations, and LLCs do not have to file annual reports. You can file these online.
