Idaho House Bill 379 – Nonprofit Corporations

Effective July 1st, 2018, Idaho House Bill 379 amends existing law to provide that only one incorporator of a nonprofit corporation is required to sign the articles of incorporation when filing at the Idaho Secretary of State. The bill also removes a reference to signature requirements for filing if “directors have not been selected”, as directors are required to be named within the articles of incorporation. Under the previous law, all of the incorporators were required to sign the articles of incorporation. The change is designed to make nonprofit signature requirements consistent with the filing requirements for corporations, which already allow for a single incorporator.

Additionally, the bill allows the WY SOS to return rejected documents within 15 days instead of five days, and eliminates the publication of notice that a LLP’s registration has lapsed.

24,000 business entities to receive notice of delinquent filings

LINCOLN – More than 24,000 business entities in Nebraska are on notice – annual and biennial reports are now past due. Secretary of State John Gale says all 2017 reports should have been filed with his office by April 1. Now, a reminder is being mailed to those limited liability companies (LLCs), limited liability partnerships (LLPs) and nonprofits, which missed the deadline.
“Each of those entity types can file and make payments online, which can help expedite the process,” explained Gale. “They have until June 1 to do this, otherwise, domestic entities could be administratively dissolved or in the case of foreign entities, have their authority revoked.”

Links to the appropriate forms are easily accessible on the main page of the Secretary of State’s website: The system guides users through the filing process and produces an electronic receipt after payment is completed.
Filings have not been received by 20,326 LLCs, 60 LLPs and 3,900 nonprofit corporations doing business in Nebraska.
Business entities that fail to file by June 1, but wish to remain in good standing, will be required to reinstate or refile, depending on the entity type. They will be assessed a reinstatement fee in addition to any payments that are past due.
