Answers to Frequently Asked Questions

What is an initial report, and when is it due?

Initial reports are information updates due to the secretary of state after you form or register a nonprofit or business entity. Due dates vary by state but often fall within 90 days of registration.


What is the difference between an initial report and an annual report?

Annual reports are organization information updates due to the secretary of state each year. After filing an initial report, nonprofits and business entities must file subsequent annual reports to maintain good standing.


What are some consequences of failing to file an initial report on time?

Failure to file an initial report with a state in the required timeframe can result in government late fees and penalties, including losing good standing.


Which states require an initial report?

Currently, only a handful of states have initial report requirements, which makes them easy for organizations to overlook. The states requiring initial reports include Alaska, California, Connecticut, Georgia, Louisiana, Missouri, Nevada, New Mexico, South Carolina, and Washington.

I really appreciate the efficiency and the fact that I don’t have to think about it…I just forward everything to [my Registration Specialist], and she takes care of it.
 ~ Erin Riley Strong – FRESH EYES DIGITAL
Stetson University
One of the best vendor decisions we’ve ever made. I don’t know why we ever wrestled with all our state compliance filings in house. Labyrinth took all of the pain out of the process, and at a price point that made the decision obvious.
 ~ Mark Ernest – STETSON UNIVERSITY
Amirah inc
Labyrinth made obtaining licenses for our out of state satellite office a breeze! Their customer service is top notch! They always respond to my requests within a day if not sooner. I sleep well at night knowing that Labyrinth is in our corner! They take the guess work out of state licensing! Don’t bother looking for another company! Let Labyrinth navigate the web of confusion for you!
~ Cheri Crider – AMIRAH INC.
National Alliance on Mental Illness
We’ve used Labyrinth for over seven years now and I have found their work and customer service to be great. Never had a single problem with all our state charity registrations over the years. We’ve been moving work being done by other companies to Labyrinth (like corporate registrations) to Labyrinth because we trust their work. Highly recommended!
~ David L ~ NAMI

Africa New Life
We are a growing nonprofit organization with donors in all 50 States. Labyrinth has allowed us to comply with the myriad rules and regulations in every State. We do not have the time, nor the expertise, to handle this on our own. Labyrinth has made it so easy for us to get into compliance!
~ Daniel Leischner – AFRICA NEW LIFE MINISTRIES INTERNATIONAL
University of Vermont Foundation
The staff at Labyrinth are very good at their jobs. They stay on top of the filings and provide a complete turn key service. I recommend using Labyrinth.
~ Charles Feeney – UNIVERSITY OF VERMONT FOUNDATION, INC.
B'Nai B'rith
My organization operates in nearly every state. Yet, like many non-profits, we are thinly staffed for admin and other back-office operations. We do not have the capacity to stay on top of every state’s charitable registration laws and/or filing requirements. Labyrinth does that for us and does it at a very reasonable rate. I would highly recommend Labyrinth for any non-profit that has multiple state charitable registration filings.
~ Jan Bigelow – B’NAI B’RITH YOUTH ORGANIZATION, INC.
National Association of Productivity & Organizing Professionals
Labyrinth made the entire process of filing for state authorizations to solicit an easy and very smoothly delivered process. After we supplied the necessary information to them, very little time was required on our end other than filing the forms in our shared drive! Definitely recommend this company!
~ Deb Cullinan – NAPO, INC.
Zamir Choral Foundation
Very helpful in navigating charitable registrations for non-profits. They are also very knowledgeable about other aspects of non-profits and are always ready to help. A wonderful organization.
~ Marilyn Gurtman-Oppenheimer – ZAMIR CHORAL FOUNDATION
