February 17, 2006 - Nearly a quarter of a million Michiganbusinesses can file their annual reports and statements to the state of Michiganvia the Internet, Department of Labor & Economic Growth (DLEG) Acting Director Robert W. Swanson announced today.


"As many as 58,000 nonprofit corporations and 186,000 limited liability companies can take advantage of this new online service," Swanson said. "Companies involved in the testing of FILEOnline found it to be very convenient."


The new service enables domestic nonprofit corporations to file their 2005 annual reports and limited liability companies to file their 2006 annual statements.


Swanson said the new service will automate the paper routing of documents, the data entry of agent or address changes, and improve the collection of revenues by providing customers with the online ability to pay annual report and statement fees with credit cards, using the secure and approved state of Michigancredit card authorization process.


DLEG's Bureau of Commercial Services, Corporation Division, launched FILEOnline in partnership with the Department of Information Technology (MDIT). Swanson said the new online service includes a customer satisfaction survey that will help both DLEG and MDIT improve their online services to business.


MDIT Director Teri Takai said, "In the future, FILEOnline will be available to domestic profit corporations, foreign corporations, professional service corporations, and professional limited liability companies, and for the filing of prior year annual reports and statements."
