Business Entity Registration
Both non-profit and for-profit businesses must be registered with the Secretary of State's office. Out-of-state businesses must be registered before doing business in this state.
For questions related to federal taxes and the different business and non-profit distinctions associated with federal tax organizational filings, please visit the IRS website at www.irs.gov. Also, note that the Secretary of State cannot answer questions about Internal Revenue Service requirements, filings or procedures.
