STEP BY STEP GUIDE TO TEXAS LLC AMENDMENTS
How to file a Texas LLC Amendment:
To make amendments to your limited liability company in Texas, you provide in duplicate the completed Form 424, Certificate of Amendment by mail, in person or by fax with form 807 for credit card information. Even that fax cover sheet form is in your online account once you sign up for Northwest on our Website.
Can you restate the initial articles instead of filing an amendment?
No. It would be twice as expensive to file a certificate of formation-LLC, not to mention it could confuse the Comptroller’s office. All LLCs are subject to state franchise tax and the Comptroller will receive copies from the secretary of state of all business formations. File an amendment and save the $ and the headache.
