Alert Concerning Solicitation to New Jersey Businesses
The Division of Revenue and Enterprise Services is alerting all New Jersey businesses to be aware of mailings concerning an “Annual Corporate Records Form" or "Annual Records Solicitation Fom". Certain private companies are sending the mailings, which solicit a fee of $125 in return for the recording of corporate shareholders, directors and officers. Business should be aware that the State of New Jersey does not require this form to be filed. Businesses should not be confused by the official appearance of the mailings. They are not connected with the State of New Jersey’s business entity annual report process, and the State has no affiliation with the sender.
New Jersey businesses that receive the mailing may report this by:
Corporate officers and business representatives who have questions about these mailings and the legal requirements to submit corporate annual reports to the State of New Jersey should contact the Division’s Hotline at 609-292-9292.
