What is Maine Corporation Dissolution?

A Maine Corporation is created when the ME Secretary of State approves the Articles of Incorporation. A record of the Maine Corporation is added to the list of Corporations which have officially registered with the Maine Secretary of State.  Once a Corporation is registered with the Maine Secretary of State, that Corporation immediately has both reporting and tax obligations which incur penalties if the obligations are not met by the required deadlines.   more...

Why do I need to Dissolve a Maine Corporation?

As soon as a Maine Corporation is registered with the ME Secretary of State, that Corporation is responsible for recurring obligations of the Maine Secretary of State and the Maine Department of Revenue.  If the Maine Corporation does not file reports or pay taxes then that ME Corporation could be responsible for penalties which go up as time goes by.

Unless you Dissolve your Maine Corporation with the Maine Secretary of State that ME Corporation will be responsible for all recurring fees and penalties.

Do I have to publish a Notice of Dissolution of the Maine Corporation?

There are no state of Maine requirements for the publication of a Notice of Dissolution of a Maine Corporation.

While the Maine Secretary of State does not legally require the publication of a Notice of Dissolution of a Maine Corporation, publication is a good way to notify anyone who might have a claim against the Maine Corporation.  Evidence of publication might prove useful down the line if someone makes a claim against the ME Corporation after the Maine Corporation has been dissolved.
