The Department of Revenue for the State of Washington is recommending that all companies with annual report or business license filings due by June 30th make these filings as soon as possible. Because of delays in budget negotiations, it’s possible that companies waiting until after June 26th will not be able to file on line this year. The Department of Revenue has indicated that if a budget is not approved by June 27th, the MYDOR portal will be taken off line and annual report filings and license renewals will have to be submitted by mail. In addition, if the lack of a budget causes a shutdown, all Revenue offices will be closed, starting Monday, July 3rd, until such time as a state budget is enacted.

The Secretary of State’s Corporations and Charities Division will be open and doing business as usual, even if there is a state government shutdown.
