DELAWARE ANNUAL REPORT AND FRANCHISE TAX UPDATE
The following is a general notification of the annual
report/franchise tax obligation to the State of Delaware. We will send an additional email notification,
once the franchise tax has been assessed and is payable for your entity type.
The 2015 Delaware Corporate Franchise Tax
and Annual Report are due by MARCH 1, 2016.
Paper copies WILL NOT be mailed. Your 2015 Delaware Annual Report and Franchise Tax notification will be sent via electronic mail to
the email address of record.

corporations using the Authorized Shares Method remains $175, while the minimum
franchise tax for corporations using the Assumed Par Value Capital Method is

Electronic filing of the Annual
Report and Franchise Tax is
mandatory for corporations in Delaware. Failing to file a fully completed report, including the names and addresses of officers
and directors, and remit the proper payment on or before MARCH 1, 2016 will
result in penalty and/or interest charges being assessed by the State of
Delaware. Additionally, it will prevent your entity from obtaining a

report but are responsible to pay the franchise tax.

How to pay: Online payment will be available, once the
