Delaware Franchise Tax Annual Report filing for C-Corps
Any Company incorporated in the State of Delaware, regardless of ownership, must file every year on March 1st, or receive an automatic $200 penalty. Delaware assesses an annual franchise tax for the privilege of doing business in the state. This return or "Annual Report" must be filed by March 1st with the state of Delaware each year, regardless on income or activity, as long as the business is registered in the state.
Many company owners find the calculations on the Delaware forms confusing, as it involves number of shares issued and held by the company. Cleer makes it simple, and can advise companies on the best way to set up your shares. We prepare this report for you, making sure you stay compliant with the State. However, the Franchise tax owed and Delaware Annual Report filing fee are not included, and are paid directly on the State's website.
We make purchasing your Annual Report easy. After registration, a link will be sent to complete our simple questionnaire. When we receive it, we assign one of our experienced Delaware Franchise Tax prep specialists, whom may ask for additional information. Once the form is prepared, you will receive a link to the Delaware website to pay the filing fee and tax due with your credit card or bank account.
PLEASE NOTE purchases made after 2/27 may not make the March 1 deadline.
