Houston County is Now Accepting Online Business Filings


Wednesday, January 15, 2020 – MONTGOMERY – Houston County recently joined numerous other counties in the State of Alabama to allow online business filings for the formation of domestic limited liability companies.

“In collaboration with the Houston County Probate Judge, the Secretary of State’s Office is excited to extend this opportunity to the residents of Houston County! Alabama businesses are making an extreme economic impact across the state, and it is important that business owners have the means necessary to file in a way that is convenient and helpful to them,” explained Secretary of State John H. Merrill.

“It is our desire at the Houston County Probate Office to facilitate the most efficient, effective and affordable way possible for citizens to transact business with their government.  We are pleased to implement electronic business filings as another method to achieve that objective,” stated Houston County Probate Judge Patrick H. Davenport.

Merrill continued, “I am grateful for the continued partnership we share in Houston County with Judge Davenport who consistently works to assist the people of that area. I look forward to the further implementation of online business filings across the state.”

This service is made available at no cost by the Secretary of State’s Office to Alabama’s 67 counties.

The Office of the Secretary of State no longer operates at the speed of government, but instead, we operate at the speed of business.

This service is currently available for the residents of Baldwin, Colbert, DeKalb, Elmore, Geneva, Jackson, Madison, Montgomery, Morgan, and Tuscaloosa counties.
