AUGUSTA, Maine — Secretary of State Charles Summers on Friday issued a reminder to businesses and nonprofit entities that their annual reports are due June 1.
Businesses and nonprofits can file using the secretary of state’s online filing system at https://www10.informe.org/aro/index_on.html. Payment may be made by Visa, MasterCard, Discover, electronic check or with a subscriber account.
The annual report fee is $85 for domestic business entities, $150 for foreign business entities and $35 for domestic or foreign nonprofit corporations. Entities that filed online in a previous year will be able to review the information provided at that time, and will need to update that information as necessary prior to filing this year’s report. For account subscribers, the online filing service includes additional functionality to assist with managing multiple annual report filings.
For entities that prefer to file a paper annual report, a preprinted form can be downloaded at http://www10.informe.org/aro/form_download.html.
A substantial late-filing penalty will be assessed, and may not be waived, on all reports received after June 1, the legal filing deadline, according to the Secretary of State’s Office.
The secretary of state’s Corporations Division is available to answer questions regarding annual report filing or changing an address. The division can be reached at 624-7752 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
