How to Dissolve an Alaska LLC
How do you dissolve an Alaska limited liability company?
To dissolve your LLC in Alaska, you must provide the completed Articles of Dissolution Limited Liability Company form, in duplicate, to the Division of Corporations, Business, and Professional Licensing by mail, fax or in person. If faxing your request, a Credit Card Payment Form is required. If you mail the articles, you may include the credit card form. You may also include a check or money order payable to the State of Alaska. The Alaska Division of Corporations, Business, and Professional Licensing does not require original signatures. They will accept faxed copies of the articles of dissolution.
A dissolved LLC may not carry on any business except as appropriate to wind up and liquidate its business and affairs.

How long before someone can take your business name?
As soon as you dissolve your LLC or corporation, the business name can be requested by another entity. However, if your company is involuntarily dissolved, your business name will be safe for six (6) months.
What is the penalty if you do not dissolve properly and just don’t file your biennial reports?
An entity that fails or refuses to file a biennial report by the due date is subject to a penalty of 10 percent of the amount of the business tax assessed against it for the period beginning January 1 of the year for which the report should have been filed.
The Alaska Division of Corporations, Business, and Professional Licensing will mail a notice of delinquency stating the reason for dissolution as the biennial report was not filed. If you do not respond to the notice of delinquency within sixty days of mailing and fail to file your biennial report within six months of the due date, your Alaska LLC will be dissolved.
After the six months has passed, you must file for reinstatement by paying all fees and penalties and filing all missed reports, if filed within two years of dissolution. If you wish to revive your Alaska company more than two years after your dissolution date, you must file as a new entity.
