Tennessee Annual Report Filing

We’re Just Not Annoying®


All businesses in Tennessee are required to submit an Annual Report to the Secretary of State each year. Annual Reports are updates to the corporate information listed with the state, such as the names and addresses of members/officers, business and mailing addresses, and registered agent information. Annual reports can be filed online or by mail.

If you hire Northwest Registered Agent, we will professionally prepare and submit your Annual Report well in advance of your compliance deadline. We guarantee that your Annual Report will be filed properly and on-time. Our service ensures that you remain compliant with this important state requirement.

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.



We will prepare and file your Annual Report for only $100 plus state fees. You never have to worry about missing compliance deadlines, getting hit with penalties and late fees, or losing your good standing. Simply hit Order Now and we will take care of the rest.
