Last week we started off the Delaware Annual Report & Franchise Tax Series with the basics. If you missed the first blog, click here to get caught up. This week we’ll dig a little deeper into the Delaware annual report, as it pertains to profit corporations.

Where are the annual report & franchise tax notices sent? In Delaware, annual report and franchise tax notices are sent to the Delaware annual report  delaware 173x300agent of record, also known as your registered agent. The registered agent is then responsible for passing the notice along to you. This is one of the major reasons it’s imperative to keep your registered agent up to date with the most current contact information for your entity.

How and when are the Delaware annual report & franchise tax notices sent? In Delaware, the registered agent may send corporate annual report and franchise tax notices to you via email or regular mail. Notices usually begin going out to Delaware corporations at the end of December or beginning of January.

How can I file my Delaware annual report? The State of Delaware Division of Corporations requires all Delaware annual reports for profit corporations be filed online. This can be done by visiting the Division of Corporation’s website at or by utilizing a registered agent. When utilizing a registered agent, you can have the agent file for you or use their filing portal that is tied directly to the State’s system (ours is Snapshot™ – if you want to know more about it, click here).
