NOTICE ABOUT E-FILING ANNUAL REPORTS: Due to the April 15th annual report filing deadline, we are experiencing a high volume of electronic filings. High demand on credit and debit card processing may cause the system to 'time out' your transaction before it is completed. If you experience this issue, please stop and try again later. PLEASE NOTE that there is NO late fee if you file your annual report after April 15th.

Please be advised that another agency in State Government will be utilizing much of the State's e-filing capacity between the hours of 9:00 p.m. - 10:30 p.m. tonight, April 15, 2014. This means it will extremely difficult to complete an e-filing during that time on the Secretary of State's website. We urge everyone wishing to file an annual report to do so at another time other than during this 90 minute window. Please keep in mind that you will not be charged a late fee or incur any other kind of penalty if you complete your filing later this week.
