Annual reports for business and nonprofit entities are due Monday

AUGUSTA, Maine ? The Bureau of Corporations, Elections and Commissions is once again reminding all business and nonprofit entities that annual reports are due this coming Monday, June 1, 2015.

The deadline notice was originally sent out in early May to all business and nonprofit entities that are on file with the Secretary of State's office as of December 31, 2014.

Those who have not yet filed can do so via the Secretary of State's online filing system. To file online, go to . Payment can be made by Visa, MasterCard, Discover, electronic check or with a subscriber account.

A substantial late-filing penalty will be assessed, and may not be waived, on all reports received after the June 1, 2015 filing deadline.
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 simply need to update that information as necessary prior to filing this year's report.

The Secretary of State's Corporations Division can assist with questions regarding annual report filing or changing an address. The division can be reached at (207) 624-7752 or by email at .
