The Florida Division of Corporations requires all businesses to file annual reports and pay a $150 fee, which may vary depending on the type of entity, to maintain active status with the Department of State.  Failure to file by the May 1, 2015, deadline will result in a $400 penalty imposed on all for-profit corporations, limited liability companies, limited partnerships, and limited liability limited partnerships.
To file an annual report and pay the required fee, Florida entities should visit www.sunbiz.orgor, if additional assistance is required, contact their tax consultants before the filing deadline.
