Deadline fast approaches for all businesses entities in Kentucky to file their 2011 annual reports with the Kentucky Secretary of State’s office. All for-profit and nonprofit corporations that do business in Kentucky are required to file current reports no later than 4:30 p.m. EDT, Thursday, June 30th.
Filing via the Secretary of State’s website is the quickest and simplest way to complete the yearly report which is required by state law. The $15 filing fee is payable on line or, if necessary, printed reports can be mailed to the Annual Reports Section, PO Box 1150, Frankfort KY 40602-1150. Checks for the fee should be made payable to the Kentucky State Treasurer and they must be received by the office by the June deadline.
Businesses that fail to file annual reports by June 30th will receive a final 60-day notice. Failure to meet the deadline results in administrative dissolution of the business entity by the Secretary of State’s office. Businesses then must apply to be reinstated which includes a $100 penalty.
