|E-filing Your Corporation’s Tax Returns? Remember, Annual Reports Must Be Filed at the Secretary of State’s Office:
|The Department of Revenue (DOR) has a new e-file capability for business corporation tax returns. However, DOR’s
system DOES NOT permit or accommodate the e-filing of annual reports. Therefore, it is CRITICAL that you e-file your annual report directly with
the Secretary of State, which you may do by going here:
|The process is simple, easy, and costs less than filing it in paper form ($20 for e-filing with the SOS instead of $25 for mailing a paper annual report to DOR).
|If you have any questions about filing an annual report online, please see the instructions for online annual report filing which may be found at the link above.
|Thank you for helping the Secretary of State’s Office keep your business records accurate and up-to-date.
turn-around times are 9-12 Business Days due to the high filing demand.
Disregard the 3-5 business day information in the online filing instructions.

The Corporations Division is responsible for the examination, custody and maintenance
of the legal documents filed by more than 400,000 corporations, limited partnerships
and limited liability companies. The duty of the Secretary of State is to ensure
uniform compliance with the statutes governing the creation of these entities, record
the information required to be kept as a public record, and provide that information
to the public. The Corporations Division acts in an administrative capacity
only and cannot give legal advice.
