Can an LLC’s Primary Address Be a PO Box?

Owners of home-based LLCs may feel tentative about providing their home addresses as the primary address of their LLCs. As a protection mechanism, some home business owners operate with a post office box, or PO box, as the primary address. There is no restriction preventing an LLC owner from using a PO box as the LLC’s business address.

Rent the PO box before you form your LLC. On your Articles of Organization form, write the PO box on the line requesting the LLC’s primary address or business address.

Your registered agent or resident agent must have a street address in the state, however. A PO box is not an acceptable form of communication for the LLC’s agent.
