The deadline for 2015 Delaware Corporate Franchise Tax and Annual Report filings is MARCH 1, 2016.

The Delaware Division of Corporations requires all Annual Reports be filed electronically and include your Delaware Franchise Tax payment. Unless a certificate of dissolution or merger was filed with the State by the end of calendar year 2014, every Corporation is required to file the Annual Franchise Tax Report and pay the Franchise Tax by the March 1st deadline. 

Failure to file a fully completed report, and remit the proper payment on or before MARCH 1, 2015, will result in a $125.00 penalty and interest of 1.5% per month assessed by the State of Delaware. Additionally, it will prevent your company from obtaining a certificate of good standing and will ultimately result in the State revoking your charter.
