No – a Certificate of Tax Clearance from the Missouri Department of Revenue is not necessary to dissolve a Missouri LLC.

How long do you think it will be before someone steals your company name?

At any moment, another party may utilise your company name. By filing or registering a fictitious business name, you are not granting or reserving any exclusive rights to use such name. There is no restriction on how many organisations may register the same fake name. Your Missouri LLC is not protected by the Fictitious Name Act. You must, however, register the name of your LLC with the Missouri Secretary of State (and of course, pay their fee.)

What is the punishment for failing to dissolve properly and just failing to submit yearly reports?

Finally, it will rely on the passage of time. If you fail to submit yearly reports, the state has the authority to dissolve your LLC or company (after about 120 days.). If you want to reestablish a Missouri LLC at any point over the following ten years, there will be a $50 reinstatement cost plus $70 to $90 each year to offset any missing yearly filing expenses. Once you’ve caught up on your filings and payments, it’s as if your Missouri LLC was never dissolved.
