How to file your Tennessee Commercial Division Annual Report:

TN Corporations, PCs, Nonprofits, LLCs, PLLCs and domestic LLPs have to file annual reports with the Tennessee Secretary of State. TN LPs, GPs and foreign LLPs have no reports. Report filers have two options:

  • Filing online is the highly recommended method. You go to the annual report page on the TN Secretary of State website and enter your state control number. You can simply look it up on the site’s business search. Then fill out the form and click, ‘Submit.’ Follow the link below.
  • You can go to the same Annual Report webpage and fill out the online form. Without submitting the form online, print it out and mail it in with a check for the filing fee. You can also request a replacement report by mail, email or by telephone.

Tennessee Division of Charitable Solicitations & Gaming:

Charitable organizations that solicit contributions in Tennessee have to register and renew annually with the Division. You can download the forms from the Division webpage or file the Charity Renewal online. The Federal 990 form must be attached. A link is furnished below.

When are Tennessee Annual Reports Due?

Tennessee LLCs, PLLCs and domestic LLPs must file their annual reports by the first day of the fourth month after the close of your fiscal year. For most companies, the fiscal year ends on December 31 and the annual report is due April 1st.
TN Charities renew by the end of the 6th month after the end of the fiscal year; generally June 31th.

Does Tennessee have initial report requirements?

No. After starting a business in Tennessee, just file by the fourth month after the fiscal year end.

What are the penalty fees for a delinquent Annual Report?

No late fees from the Division of Business Services. If you don’t file the report you get a delinquency notice. If you don’t file the report and fee within 60 days of that notice you will be administratively dissolved or revoked.

The Charity Division penalizes a late charity renewal $25 per month.

How do I get notified?

Annual report notices are sent to the business address. The notice will include the control number you need to file the report online.

If you sign up for our Tennessee registered agent service, we send timely reminders to file your annual report.
