Articles of Dissolution

MD articles of dissolution are paperwork used to legally dissolve a corporation.

Corporations (C)

Any company founded by default in the state of Maryland is classified as a C corporation. A C company has not chosen to convert to a S corporation. This word denotes that the company is taxed according to a certain IRS code, the C code.

Maryland C companies are taxed at two different levels:

The first tax that C companies pay is based on the business’s earnings.

Secondary taxation: The C company gets taxed twice on its earnings from salaries and dividends.


S Corporations have a pre-agreed-upon relationship with the IRS. They benefit from pass-through taxation. Rather of being taxed twice, the shareholders declare their earnings and losses on their own tax returns. At the corporate level, they are not obligated to pay any taxes.

The Benefits of a Maryland S Corporation

There are several benefits to incorporating a S Corporation in Maryland:

No Double Taxation: Unlike C Corporations, Maryland S Corporations are not taxed twice.

Deductions: Maryland S Corporations may also claim loss deductions.

Self-Employment Taxes: In a Maryland S Corporation, all income is treated as self-employment income. Taxpayers must only pay taxes on their real incomes.

In Maryland, you may form a corporation.

Fortunately, creating a company in Maryland is a simple process:

Step one is to come up with a company name. The term “Corporation” should appear anywhere in the company name. In Maryland, businesses can reserve a potential name for up to 30 days.

Step 2: Submit Maryland Articles of Incorporation: This form must be submitted to Maryland’s State Department of Assessments and Taxation.

The state of Maryland requires the following provisions to be included in the Articles of Incorporation:

The name of the person forming the company. It is possible for more than one individual to incorporate.

The location of the individual.

The name of the company.

The business’s goal or intention. This is the reason for the incorporation of the company.

The company’s address.

The registered agent’s name. To register the company, a registered agent is necessary. The agent should be accessible to accept any legal papers required by the company. The registered agent might be a Maryland resident or another registered company.

The registered agent’s address.

The total number of shares in the company.

The worth of each accessible share in the company. Each share in Maryland is limited to $100,000.

Each corporation’s director’s name and phone number. Maryland needs at least one director. They must be at least 18 years old, but their names do not have to be included in the Maryland Articles of Incorporation.

The signature of the incorporator.

Each registered agent’s signature.

Post-Filing Requirements in Maryland

The incorporated business must continue to provide the state with the necessary documentation. The Maryland Corporation Annual Report, which is due every year on April 15, is one of these compulsory papers. This yearly report submission is subject to a $300 cost. In addition to the annual report, the minutes of any and all annual shareholder/director meetings should be included.

Getting an LLC Dissolved

It is important to follow the procedures outlined in the Articles of Organization when dissolving a firm. There is usually a section with detailed regulations on how and if the company may be dissolved. This information, however, will not be included in every Articles of Incorporation. If it is not included, it may be necessary to reach a majority conclusion.

If no unanimous consensus is reached, the decision will be made by the state. The dissolution of an LLC is governed by Maryland law. One member may need to obtain a formal resolution, after which the court will decide whether or not to dissolve the marriage. The members of the court will very certainly be required to vote.

The vote must be held with at least 10 days’ notice and must involve the majority of the board members. Finally, the business must be dissolved by a vote of at least two-thirds of the board members. If a vote cannot be held, Maryland may seek written agreement from each shareholder.
