Franchise Tax / Annual Report Forms
A.C.A. § 26-54-101 et al., also known as the “Arkansas Corporate Franchise Tax Act of 1979”, requires all Corporations, LLC's, Banks, and Insurance Companies registered in Arkansas to pay an annual franchise tax. Failure to pay can result in the imposition of additional fees, penalties and interest, or even revocation of the authorization to do business. Franchise taxes continue to accrue, even for revoked businesses, until the business is dissolved, withdrawn, or merged. And, per A.C.A. § 26-54-114, any additional BCS filings are prohibited for persons or entities that fail to pay the franchise tax.
