Reminder: Delaware Corporation Annual Report and Franchise Tax Filing Deadline March 1st

Delaware Corporations
Franchise tax: March 1, 2016 DUE DATE
Dear Valued Client:  

This is your final reminder from your Delaware Registered Agent that there are only two weeks remaining to pay the State of Delaware Franchise Tax and file your Corporation Annual Report. The filing 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. 

Failing to file a fully completed report, and remit the proper payment on or before MARCH 1, 2016, 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.
