According to a press release by from the Ohio Secretary of State's office, the SOS now allows the most frequently used business forms to be filed online. As of today, the SOS Business Services forms page indicates that the following forms can be filed electronically once a filer registers:
- Continued Existence of Nonprofit Corporation
- Biennial Reports for LLCs, LLPs and Professional Associations
- Articles of Incorporation for a Domestic LLC
- Renewals for Trade Names and Fictitious Names).
According to the SOS, these forms comprise 50% of all the business filings its office receives. Interestingly, in this digital world in which we live, the SOS "will continue to make paper forms available for those who prefer to file business forms using the traditional method."
