Corporate Annual Reports No Longer Filed with NCDOR in 2018

Effective January 1, 2018, all corporate annual reports must be filed directly with the Secretary of State's Office.

Prior to the law change, corporations could file their North Carolina income tax returns and North Carolina annual reports together with the N. C. Department of Revenue. In 2018, corporations must file their annual reports directly with the Secretary of State, and can no longer file them with the N. C. Department of Revenue as part of their income tax filings.

NCDOR Offers Tax Relief for Victims of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria

The North Carolina Department of Revenue recognizes that recent hurricanes may have affected the ability of certain taxpayers to meet North Carolina’s filing deadlines. The Department will work with taxpayers, on a case-by-case basis, and will waive any penalties assessed against taxpayers who cannot meet state filing or payment requirements as a result of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria and generally recognize the federal due date of January 31, 2018. Additionally, the Department is allowing an extension of 30 days for filing returns for sales and use taxes for affected taxpayers.
