After you form an LLC in South Dakota, you must file an Annual Report every year in order to keep your South Dakota LLC in compliance and in good standing.
How to File an LLC Annual Report in South Dakota
You can file your South Dakota LLC’s Annual Report online or by mail.
- If you file online, the filing fee is $50 and your Annual Report will be processed and approved immediately
- If you file by mail, the filing fee is $65 and your Annual Report will be processed and approved in 3-5 business days
Your first Annual Report is due by the last day of your LLC’s anniversary month, following the year it was formed. Your following Annual Reports will be due by the same date every year after that.
Your LLC will be marked “delinquent” if you fail to file your Annual Report. To reinstate your LLC’s good standing status, you’ll have to file all of your delinquent Annual Reports, pay the filing fee(s), plus a $50 penalty for each late Annual Report.
If you continue to ignore this requirement, then the South Dakota Secretary of State will administratively dissolve your LLC.
