As you know by now, the State of Delaware LLC/LP Franchise Tax is due annually by June 1st. Harvard Business Services, Inc. has been sending plenty of reminder notices via mail and email to make sure you make payment arrangements before the deadline.
If you don’t pay on time, the state of Delaware is going to impose a $200 late penalty plus 1.5% monthly interest on your company. In addition, the company is going to be put in a ceased good standing status. Since you likely don’t want to pay any more fees than you have to, it’s a good idea to take care of the filing sooner rather than later.
