What are State Filing Fees?

Each state requires future entrepreneurs like you, who are starting a business to pay a one-time filing fee to process your business forms. These fees are state-dependent government fees and will vary from state to state depending on what type of business you will be starting. Once your attorney has processed your business request they will collect these fees and submit them on your behalf directly to the appropriate party along with your new business forms. To understand the range of fees that may be associated with the filing of your business we have provided a State filing fee tool below.
