April 7 SBAC Talking Points

LLC Legislation lowering LLC Filing Passes Senate, Progresses to the Illinois House

  • Illinois LLC filing fees are the highest in the nation
  • With the help and outreach of our members and the nearly 30 business groups across the state that have joined our Coalition to Lower LLC Filing Fees, SB 2776 lowering LLC filing fees from $500 to $39 (SB 2776 and HB 4361) passed the Senate last week!
  • The LLC bill now moves to the Illinois House and will be called in the weeks ahead – please contact your state representative to ask for support and to co-sponsor the bill
