AZ Ongoing Filing Requirements

Corp

Annual Report
Frequency: Annually
Due: Anniversary of your formation date
Filing Fee: $45

Publication
Due: Within 60 days of your formation date
Publication Fee: Varies by newspaper

Arizona requires your corporation to notify the public of its formation by publishing its articles of incorporation for 3 consecutive publications in a newspaper of general circulation in the same county as your business’s “Known Place of Business” in Arizona. Failure to publish can lead to administrative dissolution of your corporation. That’s a bad thing.

After the publication is complete, the newspaper will send you an Affidavit of Publication, which shows the publication requirement has been met. We recommend you keep it with your other important company documents in your compliance kit.

Note: The publication requirement will be waived if your “Known Place of Business” is located in Maricopa County or Pima County. Instead, the Arizona Corporation Commission will publish the notice of your business formation on their website.
