Secretary of State’s office visiting counties to help businesses file annual reports

CHARLESTON, W.Va.— Secretary of State Mac Warner is pleased to announce mobile office visits to all 55 counties in April to assist business owners and entrepreneurs with filing their annual reports on time.

Office staff will be at the Upshur County Clerk’s Office on April 17 from 1:30 p.m.-3 p.m.

There are approximately 117,000 businesses, including non-profits and charities, required to file an Annual Report. In 2018, nearly 97 percent of those businesses filed online.

“Our office has made it a priority to assist anyone who may need help in filing their annual, whether by paper or online,” Warner said. “Our field representatives have been diligently going out in their communities and providing a service that directly benefits the taxpayers.”

State law requires all entities that do business in West Virginia to file an Annual Report with the Secretary of State’s Office. That report provides information to the public about the officers and/or members of the entity as well as listing a service of process agent. Annual Reports are due by July 1st of each year.

Warner’s staff includes a five-person Field Services Team that will conduct mobile office hours for at least one day in every county during the month of April. Help will be provided to any business owner needing assistance with filing their Annual Report.

In addition to the Mobile Office Hours in April, businesses can receive help throughout the year at the WV One Stop Business Center in Charleston, or at one of the regional Business Hub offices in Clarksburg and Martinsburg.

Businesses can also call the WVSOS Business Call Center at (304) 558-8000 for assistance over the phone.
