McCulloch Reminds Businesses to File Annual Report By April 15
Legal Requirement for Domestic/Foreign Corporations and Limited Liability Companies

HELENA – Secretary of State Linda McCulloch is sending out notices this week reminding businesses to file their legally required Annual Report by April 15.  Businesses that fail to file the 2013 Annual Report will lose the authority to legally operate in Montana.

“Folks can conveniently file their report online or send the paperwork to us by mail,” Secretary McCulloch said. “We’re expecting more than 80,000 filings to be returned in the next month, so filing early will help to ensure any potential issues can be resolved before the deadline.”

Montana law requires every Corporation and Limited Liability Company (LLC) to file an Annual Report and pay the associated $15 filing fee by April 15 of each year.  Postmarks are not accepted. Those who fail to file their 2013 Annual Report by April 15 could face late fees and involuntary revocation of their business license or dissolution of their business.
