As you get organized for the end of the year, add cleaning up your corporate filings calendar to your to do list. It’s important that you keep track of important filing dates, as well as when incorporation or LLC fees are due to avoid late penalties.
When Is Your Paperwork Due?
If your state requires you to file an Annual Report (some states don’t require them, while others require a Biennial Report), find out when it’s due each year. Some states make it due a year from your incorporation anniversary, while others require these documents to be submitted during a specific month each year. Whichever your state requires, it will be the same each year.
For example: when you create an LLC in Nevada, the Annual List is due on or before the last day of the first month after filing your articles of organization. So if you first filed your LLC paperwork in June, your Annual List would be due by July 31.
