Businesses Should Have Franchise Tax Form This Week

 Arkansas Secretary of State Mark Martin today reminded businesses that they should be receiving a franchise tax form in the coming days.

 “Any corporation, limited liability company, partnership or other business entity registered with my office should receive a form either by mail or electronically by March 20,” Martin said.
 
If a business has not received the forms from the Secretary of State by March 20, that business should request, download or copy a franchise tax form from another source. This must be done in order to comply with the May 1 franchise tax filing deadline for all for-profit businesses registered at the Secretary of State.
 
“Franchise taxes are due May 1. We don’t want any business to miss the filing deadline because the business did not get a form in the mail or email,” Martin said.
 
Forms may be requested in writing by e-mailing [email protected] or by writing Secretary of State Business & Commercial Services, 1401 West Capitol Avenue, Room 250, Little Rock, AR 72201. Questions may also be directed to BCS by calling 501-682-3409.
 
Forms are accessible online at www.sos.arkansas.gov. Many forms are also available from commercial tax preparation companies.
