A large number of Mississippi businesses are running out of time to file their annual reports.
According to Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann, more than 30,000 businesses have not filed their annual report, which was due to the state back in April.
Under Mississippi law, all limited liability companies (LLCs) and corporations are required to file an Annual Report online with the Secretary of State’s Office between January 1 and April 15.
Annual Reports include information about businesses’ state of incorporation, e-mail address, principal street address, registered agent, and managers and members.
Businesses failing to file an Annual Report will be administratively dissolved in early November 2018. While the reports are late, Hosemann made it clear that his office is here to help.
“Our staff is eager to assist anyone who may have a question about how to file their Annual Report,” Hosemann said. “We have the lowest filing fees in the Nation, and we want to make it as easy as possible for businesses to fulfill their legal obligations and for the public to search records filed.”
Domestic LLCs file Annual Reports at no cost in Mississippi. Corporate Annual Reports are $25, and foreign LLCs pay $250.
Approximately 180,000 foreign and domestic LLCs and corporations currently operate in the State. For more information about Annual Reports, visit the Business Services Division’s website or call (601) 359-1633 or 1-800-256-3494.
