Why Hire IncFast?

Forming a Nebraska LLC creates a permanent public record with your name and address. When you file a Certificate of Organization, it becomes a searchable public document linking you to your Nebraska LLC. Our goal is to reduce the threat of compromised security as well as junk mail and solicitations. IncFast will not only file your paperwork faster than any other incorporation service, we’re the only incorporator that will focus on your personal privacy. We use our own registered agent service address and omit your home and office address from permanent public records whenever possible. Any time you decide you would like to use your home or business address, we’ll make the change for free. If you want to keep your address private, we offer continued Nebraska registered agent service for $125 a year. As your Nebraska registered agent we’ll act as your business’ doorman, shielding your home or office address and forcing the data miners and potential security threats to go through us first to notify you.

Nebraska LLC Advantages

  1. Asset Protection
    There are many advantages to forming a Nebraska limited liability company for your business. First and foremost is the liability protection of the personal assets of the owners. A Nebraska limited liability company is a legal entity that exists separately from its owners and members. Under Nebraska’s Uniform Limited Liability Company Act the only remedy a creditor can use to gain an interest in an LLC is a charging order. This means that should a member of the LLC be sued by a creditor; the creditor can only seek to be repaid through the LLC by a court order. The judgment creditor is only entitled to the member’s distributions, not the members entire interest in the LLC. Since the charging order is considered a lien, it may be foreclosed upon court order if it is shown that the distributions will not repay the debt in a reasonable amount of time.
  2. No Formalities
    Nebraska LLCs aren’t required to hold annual meetings and pass resolutions like corporations. Nebraska LLCs are a much simpler business entity.
  3. Nebraska Income Tax
    A Nebraska LLC has the same filing status as it does for federal income taxes. If the LLC is taxed as a partnership or S corporation, then the appropriate Nebraska tax return must be filed. If you are taxed as a corporation, you must pay the corporate income tax. The Nebraska Corporate Income Tax rate is 5.58% on income up to $100,000 and 7.81% on income over $100,000. Nebraska Individual Income Tax rates range from 2.46% to 6.84%.
  4. Simple Maintenance
    Nebraska LLCs don’t have to hold annual meetings or pass resolutions. This means you have more time to focus on your business. You will need to file an Biennial Report with the Nebraska  Secretary of State. This report costs only $10 and is due by April 1st of odd numbered years. The NE Secretary of State will send a biennial report reminder to your Nebraska registered agent. When IncFast is your Nebraska registered agent, we also send you a Nebraska annual report reminder.

How to Form a Nebraska LLC

  1. File the Certificate of Organization with the Nebraska Secretary of State

In Nebraska, limited liability companies (LLCs) are formed by filing a formation document called the Certificate of Organization with the Nebraska Secretary of State.

  1. Include the following information in the Certificate of Organization

    • Nebraska LLC name (must include “Limited Liability Company,” “Limited Company,” or an abbreviation)
    • Nebraska resident agent, registered office address, and signature
    • Signature of a person authorized to form the LLC (known as the organizer(s))
  2. Submit the completed Certificate of Organization to the Secretary of State

In Nebraska, you can file online, in person, or by mail.

If you would prefer to have us complete the LLC paperwork and filing for you, we charge $99 plus state fees.

Do Nebraska LLCs need an operating agreement?

The members of a Nebraska LLC may enter an operating agreement, but are not required to do so. An operating agreement can be very beneficial to an LLC. A limited liability company operating agreement gives details for how the members and managers will interact. Clear, well-thought-out agreements will help settle member disputes, explain how profits and losses are distributed, and set rules about membership and dissolution. We include an operating agreement with every IncFast LLC order.
