Louisiana Secretary of State Tom Schedler is cautioning business owners to be aware of annual report correspondences that appear to come from the state, but do not. At least two private companies -Louisiana Corporate Compliance Business Services Division and Corporate Compliance Company - have sent letters to local corporations and LLCs offering to file their annual reports for a fee. The letters suggest the filing is required by state law, and the mailings have been timed to coincide with the state's Annual Report Renewal Notice, which went out in January. Schedler cautions businesses against sending filing fees to either of the compliance companies. "Any reports sent to (these companies) . . . will not fulfill the reports that are due to the Department of State under Louisiana law," he says. For more information, business owners may call the Department of State Commercial Services Division at (225)925-4704 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
