Costs & Fees

Our Business Assistant will help you estimate the regulatory costs of conducting business in Rhode Island. Below is a chart that outlines some of the different business structures and the associated annual filing fees and taxes.

All registered for-profit business entities (Corporations, Limited Liability Companies, and Limited Partnerships) are required to pay at least a minimum annual tax of $400 to the RI Division of Taxation. This tax is owed whether or not business is actually conducted or a profit is made.
