Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White announced that limited liability companies (LLC) operating in the state are now able to file their required annual reports via the Internet.
Beginning this month, people can visit CyberdriveIllinois.com to file the Annual Report for their LLC with the Secretary of States Department of Business Services on a real-time or immediate basis.
Previously, documents were submitted through the mail or in person by visiting one of the Secretary of States Business Services offices.
This is part of our ongoing plan to make business transactions more efficient and convenient by using the Internet, White said. It saves paper and is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
There are 122,507 limited liability companies registered in Illinois. Corporations have had the ability to file annual reports online since January of this year.
The filing fee is $250 with a payment process fee of $6.25, and payments can be made with Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express or with an e-check.
In addition, the Illinois Secretary of States office offers Internet services for Uniform Commercial Code filing and Certificates of Good Standing for both corporations and limited liability companies.
