What is the basis for suspension?
North Carolina General Statute 105-230 requires the Department of Revenue to notify the Secretary of State when a "corporation or a limited liability company fails to file any report or return or to pay any tax or fee required by the tax laws for 90 days after it is due." It further requires the Secretary of State to "suspend the articles of incorporation, articles of organization, or certificate of authority, as appropriate, of the corporation or limited liability company." All the powers and privileges of the business entity will cease upon the suspension.

My corporation has been suspended by the Department of Revenue. What do I need to do in order to be reinstated?
You must file all returns for all tax schedules and pay all tax, penalty, and interest due and pay a $25 reinstatement fee to the Department of Revenue. Upon receipt, the business entity will be reinstated and the Department of Revenue will notify the Secretary of State’s office. You may contact the NC Department of Revenue at 1-877-919-1819 extension 10093 for further information.

I have already complied with the Department of Revenue issues yet the status has not been changed on the Corporations website. What do I do?
The North Carolina Secretary of State’s Office cannot change the status unless the Department of Revenue forwards a reinstatement letter lifting the suspension. Contact the Department of Revenue at 1-877-919-1819 extension 10093 with any questions.
