Are you up to date on your business entity reports with the state of Indiana? Carrie Minnich in a blog post from August 2016 addresses how an organization can be reinstated if the reports have not been filed. The problem with not filing is that the organization will be administratively dissolved and may not conduct business.
Below are the steps Carrie mentions that are required to be reinstated.
1. “Complete Form AD-19, Affidavit for Reinstatement of Domestic Corporation and Form ROC-1, Correct/Change of Responsible Officer Information to obtain a Certificate of Clearance from the Indiana Department of Revenue.”
2. “The Certificate of Clearance will be mailed to you by the Indiana Department of Revenue in approximately 4 weeks.”
3. “Complete Form 4160, Application of Reinstatement. You must have a Certificate of Clearance from the Indiana Department of Revenue before the Application for Reinstatement can be filed. There is a $30 reinstatement fee required with this form.”
4. “Complete Form 48725, Indiana Business Entity Report and pay the required filing fees for all years owed. It is not necessary to complete a separate form for each filing year owed; however, you must pay the filing fee for each year and complete the most current form.”
5. “Mail the Certificate of Clearance, Application for Reinstatement and Business Entity Report, along with the required fees noted in 3 and 4 above to the Indiana Secretary of State. All four of these must be mailed together.”
