An entity that fails to file and pay an annual report/renewal by its due date, which is the anniversary date of its organization in Utah, is subject to a penalty of $10. A Utah LLC is terminated by the Division of Corporations when the annual report/renewal is delinquent two years. Then you have two more years to reinstate before you must start over with new articles of organization. Here is a link to Utah’s Corporate Annual Report/Renewal form. http://corporations.utah.gov/onlinechangeforms.html
The Utah Division of Corporations & Commercial Code will mail a notice of delinquency to your registered agent informing you that you will be dissolved on your next registration anniversary if the late report and renewal fee and penalties are not filed and paid. When that happens, you have two years to file an application for reinstatement of your domestic Limited Liability Company in Utah. After the second year you will need to start over with new articles of organization.
