Delaware LP/LLC/GP Franchise Tax Filing Deadline Closing In

This year is passing by like a speeding train!  It’s May 1st, and the filing deadline for Delaware GP/LP/LLC franchise tax filings is 31 days away.

If you haven’t already done so, you may well be doing yourself a favor by paying your Delaware LP/LLC/GP franchise tax sooner rather than later.  While the filing deadline is June 1st, we highly recommend that you arrange to pay the tax at least a week before the deadline.  Delaware LP/LLC/GPs are so numerous that if you wait ‘til the final deadline, you may find that the State’s online payment services are disrupted or unavailable.  Technical difficulties will not excuse you for filing late.  The penalty for late filing is $200 plus 1.5% interest per month on the unpaid balance. Additionally, failure to pay will prevent the company from obtaining a certificate of good standing.

We can assist you with our secure payment link to the State.  Not only will your franchise tax be electronically filed, our site will provide you with an order number and receipt.  Once our customer service representatives receive your order, you will receive a copy of your PAID invoice and, if paying via credit card, a copy of your sales draft.  Paying by credit card, vs. check or electronic bank transfer, is advantageous because it will allow your tax payment to be filed immediately.  Additionally, filing your franchise tax through our EZ File link will add your franchise tax payment to your Order/Billing History record, for future reference. 

Just login to your online account, using your email address of record.  If you have more than one company linked to your email address, your company list will appear in the “Select a company” dropdown window, when you select the EZ File option.  If you need assistance with the EZ File process, please contact us.
