E-filing Your Corporation's Tax Returns? Remember, Annual Reports Must Be Filed at the Secretary of State's Office

The Department of Revenue (DOR) has a new e-file capability for business corporation tax returns. However, DOR’s system DOES NOT permit or accommodate the e-filing of annual reports. Therefore, it is CRITICAL that you e-file your annual report directly with the Secretary of State, which you may do by going here:

The process is simple, easy, and costs less than filing it in paper form ($20 for e-filing with the SOS instead of $25 for mailing a paper annual report to DOR. The filing fee for a LLC annual report remains the same at $200.00 plus a $2.00 electronic filing fee.)

If you have any questions about filing an annual report online, please see the instructions for online annual report filing or watch our step-by-step instructional video for filing a business corporation annual report with the NC Department of the Secretary of State .

Thank you for helping the Secretary of State’s Office keep your business records accurate and up-to-date
