The Arizona Corporation Commission will no longer allow a new Arizona limited liability company to use a Post Office box for the LLC’s known place of business in Arizona.  Arizona Revised Statute Section 29-604.A states:

“A limited liability company shall appoint and continuously maintain in this state . . . A known place of business that may be the address of its statutory agent.”

Arizona Revised Statutes Section 29-632.A states:

“The articles of organization shall state . . . . The address of the company’s known place of business in this state, if different from the street address of the company’s statutory agent.”

Despite the fact neither statute contains any reference to, much less a prohibition against the LLC from using a P.O box as the LLC’s known place of business, the ACC will no longer accept Articles of Organization that shown that the company’s only place of business address is a PO box.
