Biennial Report Due Date

The Biennial Report deadline is the 15th day of the 4th month after the end of the Corporation’s taxable year.  Most Corporations use the calendar year as their taxable year, meaning the end of their taxable year is December 31st, which would make the deadline April 15th.  Filing is determined by the Business ID assigned by the Secretary of State.  If your Business ID number is an even number, your Corporation will file every even-numbered year.  Odd-numbered Business IDs file on odd-numbered years.

The Secretary of State’s office emails a reminder in advance of the Biennial Report due date. Even though a reminder is sent, it’s important to make an additional reminder for yourself should you not receive it.
