There are two things I want you to take away from this blog post:

1. Effective March 24, 2020, the Arizona Corporation Commission closed its offices to the public.  This means it is not possible to go the the ACC’s office and hand file a document or make a request.

2. We can electronically file Articles of Organization for a new Arizona LLC and get it approved by the Arizona Corporation Commission on the same day we are hired.  See the contents and prices of our three LLC packages.  To hire us to form your LLC today submit our online LLC Formation Questionnaire.

The text below is from a notice issued by the Arizona Corporation Commission on March 24, 2020.

Update Regarding In-Person Services & COVID-19 at the Arizona Corporation Commission

Phoenix – In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, the Arizona Corporation Commission will be suspending all in-person services. Our number one goal is to keep the public and our employees safe. We are committed to providing continuity of services and uphold our statutory duties, all while reducing exposure to the coronavirus by taking the following steps:

DOCKET CONTROL

Effective Wednesday, March 25, 2020, we are temporarily closing the Docket Control window to the public. Docket will continue to accept e-filings and filings submitted by mail. If a member of the public arrives at the Commission with documents for Docket Control, they may leave them with the security guard. A member of the Docket team will come to the office daily to pick up any mail received and ensure that the filings are entered into the eDocket system. There will be a posting on the Docket window and on our website informing the public of these temporary procedures. For assistance, please call 602-542-3477 or email help-edocket@azcc.gov.

CORPORATIONS – PHOENIX OFFICE

Effective Thursday, March 26, 2020, we will temporarily close both the Corporations Division’s Filing and Records windows to the public. Corporations Division staff will continue to receive and process online filings and filings submitted by mail. If a member of the public arrives at the Commission to file business documents, they may drop off their documents with the security guard, but only if they are paying by check. The call center will continue to take calls from the public. There will be a posting on the entrance of the 1300 building and on our website informing the public of these temporary procedures.

CORPORATIONS – TUCSON OFFICE

Effective Thursday, March 26, 2020, we will temporarily close the Corporations Division’s filing windows in Tucson to the public. Staff will continue to process online filings. Members of the public may drop off their filings at the Tucson office, but only if they are paying by check. A drop box will be provided for this purpose. There will be a posting on the entrance of the building and on our website informing the public of these temporary procedures.

1200 and 1300 BUILDINGS – PHOENIX OFFICES

Effective Thursday, March 26, 2020, access to both buildings will be restricted to staff only. Badges will be required to enter the buildings. All meetings and interviews will be by appointment only.
