Personal Property Business Forfeited

There are four steps for any entity to correct the "forfeited" status: (1) File all missing Annual Reports/Personal Property Returns for every year and pay the $300 annual filing fee for each year; (2) Pay the local county/city government's personal property tax bill for any reported property after the Department has sent an assessment notice to the local government; (3) Obtain a "tax clearance certificate" from the local government after any personal property tax bills have been paid; and (4) File "Articles of Revival or Reinstatement" with the Department by attaching a copy of the tax clearance certificate. Instructions and a form for reinstatement can be downloaded from the Department's "Business Data Search" page and clicking on "Get Forms" in the yellow banner for the main menu. Scroll down to " REVIVE A BUSINESS ". For further information, please contact the State Department of Assessments and Taxation for questions and fees at 410.767.4991.
