I’m a Canadian citizen and resident. My Canadian accountant told me to purchase US real estate through an LLP or LLLP. Which states allow for LLPs vs LLLPs to be setup?


Unlike LLPs which can be formed in any state, only certain states offer the option for the creation of an LLLP. These states are:

  • Arizona
  • Arkansas
  • Colorado
  • Delaware
  • Florida
  • Georgia
  • Hawaii
  • Idaho
  • Illinois
  • Iowa
  • Kentucky
  • Maryland
  • Minnesota
  • Missouri
  • Nevada
  • North Carolina
  • North Dakota
  • Oklahoma
  • Pennsylvania
  • South Dakota
  • Texas
  • Virginia
  • US Virgin Islands

In addition, while California does not have an LLLP-creation statute, the state does recognize LLLPs formed in other states but registering such LLLP in California will require the annual $800 franchise tax, similar to other entities formed in California.
