New Mexico LLC Advantages

  1. No Formalities
    New Mexico LLCs are designed to be a simpler alternative to the corporation. Unlike corporations, New Mexico LLCs are not responsible for forming resolutions or holding meetings.
  2. New Mexico Income Tax
    New Mexico pass through entities, including limited liability companies, must complete a New Mexico income tax return. If you are subject to New Mexico’s personal income tax, rates range from 1.7% to 4.9%. New Mexico corporations are subject to Corporate Income Tax and Franchise Tax. The corporate income tax rate ranges from 4.8% to 6.6%. The franchise tax is $50 per year.
  3. Asset Protection
    Forming an LLC is a way to separate your personal assets from that of your business. A New Mexico limited liability company is a separate legal business entity that exists apart from its owners or members. New Mexico law provides for the protection of the LLC from a member’s personal debts. However, a member’s personal creditor can seek to gain an interest in an LLC through a charging order. This means that should a member of the LLC be sued by a creditor, the creditor can seek to be repaid through the LLC by a court order. The creditor does not become a member of the LLC, they are only entitled to the debtor/member’s distributions to repay the debt.
  4. Simple Maintenance
    Another benefit of the New Mexico LLC is that they are easy to maintain. NM corporations must file biennial reports with the Secretary of State. New Mexico limited liability companies have no such requirement.
