Just opened a NM LLC for a side gig. Not interested in having my day job employer find out about it in any easily-accessible fashion. I'm the single member-manager. NM doesn't require the names of managers/members, so none were provided- all that's visible is the Registered Agent and the PO Box I set up. When I went to open a business checking account, I was expecting to provide the LLC Articles to show ownership- problem is, my name is nowhere on the Articles provided to the state (by design), and, even though I've got a long personal relationship with the bank, they need a formal document to show ownership. EIN doc with my name linked to the LLC name, along with any and all email threads with the registering service, didn't cut it.
Any one else have this experience? Next step is to hit a few other local banks to see if they might be less stringent (current bank salesperson thought it was a done deal, had it opened, and deposited money, before compliance backed it out a few days later).

Also checking in with a few of the fuller-service "privacy llc" sites to see what they'd do.
Certainly there's a way; there's bound to be other legal situations where I'll have to prove ownership. Operating agreement generally shows ownership/management. Can you find a family member or friend to act as a patsy for the LLC?
Good point... but I'd rather not go that route. Will see if I can file an operating agreement, with my name, and not have SOS site publish it (looks like they publish all events, but not necessarily the docs associated with it).

You don't file an operating agreement.. You keep that with the LLC's books.
Get an attorney. It seems you have a poor understanding of what to do.
