Statement of Information Notice, Part 2

We recently received our biennial notice from the California Secretary of State informing us that our Statement of Information (LLC-12R) is due. The only problem is that this form no longer exists! I spoke with a customer-service representative, and she informed me that Form LLC-12R had been merged with Form LLC-12 to make a hybrid with the latter's name; however, budget cuts have prevented them from updating the notices.

Online filing and payments are still not available for LLCs as they are for corporations, so you still have to print out the form and mail it with a check for $20. They are currently 11 weeks behind in processing statements of information, so it will likely take that long for them to deposit your check. Use a cashier's check or money order if you plan on changing banks during that time.

Update: Form LLC-12NC is now the correct form to file when there are no changes to the Statement of Information.

We're Back, Baby!

To paraphrase Mark Twain, the news of our death has been greatly exaggerated.* After working on other projects for a while, the Truth Rally team is back in action. And when it comes to announcing comebacks, no one can top Señor Rodríguez:

Stay tuned for updates!
*For those who like to quibble, Twain's original quip was: "The report of my death was an exaggeration." However, I've always preferred this common misquotation.
