Maine Nonprofit Corporations Annual Report Due June 1

by Brenda Peluso

June 1st is the deadline for nonprofits incorporated in the State of Maine to file their annual report with the Secretary of State’s office. The annual filing may be done online or by mail and there is a $35 fee. For more information, visit the Bureau of Corporations’ website or contact the Bureau at  (207) 624-7752.

Nonprofits that fail to file their annual report on time will be subject to late fees or may face administrative dissolution.  Dissolution can also result in the loss of IRS tax-exemption so it is critical that nonprofit corporations stay on top of this annual filing date.  If you file annually online, you will receive a reminder each year; however, if you file a paper report, there is no reminder system and you will need to have a system in place to ensure that you meet the deadline.

The report is easy to complete and you will need the following information to do so:

  • Your Charter Number (not your tax ID number)
  • Name & Address of your Registered Agent (This may or may not be a “commercial” registered agent.  A Commercial Registered Agent is just someone you hire to be a responsible legal contact for the organization.  It could be your executive director, a board member, or other person whose connection to the organization and mailing address are stable.)
  • Names & Addresses of your current board of directors (These may be work addresses, but they must be street addresses.)

I have toyed with the idea of becoming a non prfiot but I don’t want other people telling me what to write or I don’t want to start a non prfiot organization and be thrown out of it on my ear .For someone else with a different view point then mine to run . I have one purpose and one purpose only to tell people loving other people is the most important thing they will do while they are a live .
