The Annual Certificate or report is due on the last day of your LLC’s formation in Oklahoma, but as of 2010, the $25 annual certificate fee has been cancelled because you are now required to pay it on July 1st when you submit your Business Activity Tax Return to the Tax Commission. On September 15th you will have a 10% penalty added to your $25 Business Activity Tax. This amount will have 1.25% interest added every month also until it is paid. An LLC in Oklahoma may apply for reinstatement up until the third year of late annual certificate filing.
