Pursuant to Section 79-29-215 Miss. Code Ann. (1972), all limited liability companies operating in Mississippi will be required to file an Annual Report with the Secretary of State beginning in 2011. Here is what you have to know about this new filing.
What are the deadlines for filing my LLC’s 2010 Annual Report?
The new LLC Annual Reporting Forms will be available to the public on Monday, Jan. 3, 2011, on the Secretary of State’s web site at www.sos.ms.gov. The deadline for completing the report is April 15, 2011.
How will I access my LLC’s information?
Each LLC should use their Mississippi business identification number to access their information. Your company’s business ID number can be found on your company’s webpage on the Secretary of State’s website.
What is the cost to file the Annual Report?
For Mississippi LLCs, there is no cost for online filing. The process for completing the form online will involve filling out the necessary information and hitting “submit.” As an alternative, the form may be printed out, completed, and mailed in to the Secretary of State’s office at P.O. Box 136, Jackson, MS 39205.
There is a $250 annual fee for out-of-state or ‘foreign’ LLCs. There is no online filing allowed for these LLCs. Foreign LLCs must complete the form online, print it out and submit it with their $250 annual fee to the Secretary of State’s office at P.O. Box 1020, Jackson, MS 39215-1020.
