Year End Deadlines & Holiday Hours for 2016-2017


It's that time of year again!

Most entrepreneurs want to start their new Small biz at the beginning of the new year. So, beware, the State Filing Times Estimate (the time it takes the state to process a filing) often takes longer because of higher filing volumes at the state.  Additionally, our processing time takes a little longer because of our increased order volume.

To ensure we are able to take care of your incorporation & LLC formation needs this holiday season, we've provided some year-end deadlines (when using our EXPEDITED Service), holiday hours and other general holiday information to assist you with your order making decisions.  These dates & times are subject to change daily.  If you have a filing deadline approaching, please check back again or contact us.

* NOTE:  Even though your filing may be filed effective on or before 12/31/2016, we will often receive your approval back only after the state completes your filing, which may be after 1/1/17.  For a better estimate of how long this will take, see your own state's "State Filing Time Estimate."  

 

Because most states do not guarantee filing dates, even when expedite fees are paid, we cannot guarantee filing dates.  ONLY EXPEDITED SERVICE ORDERS are included in estimates above.  Standard (Non-Expedited) orders are NOT included in estimates above.

** If indicated, Next Day Air can be ordered to speed up the processing time even further.

 

Effective Filing Date

In every state, you will be asked if you wish to have your filing date be effective on or after 01/01/2017. PLEASE NOTE: You may be required to pay additional fees or taxes to your state if your entity is filed effective on or before 12/31/2016. We recommend that you research your options in the "Research Now" area located right on our www.smallbiz.com Home page, BEFORE you submit your order. Although we may be "Expediting" your filing, please note that it may take some additional time to ship your materials as we normally operate from a backlog of orders to be completed during this time.
 

Shipping Info

Additionally, because of expected US Postal Service delays during the holiday season, we recommend you choose FedEx 2nd Day or Next Day Air to speed up shipping and minimize delays.

 

All Corporate & LLC Kits, Company Seals, Stock & Membership Certificates, Corporate Forms on CD are made to order offsite by our supplier and shipped via FedEx Ground ( click here for shipping time estimates) unless you pay for FedEx 2nd Day or Next Day Shipping. We generally request production of your kit, seal, and/or certificate materials the same day we receive your approved documents from your state. However, during the holidays, we may delay fulfilling your order and shipping everything to you as we focus on getting filings completed first (and getting a digital copy to you). With this in mind, if you haven't paid for FedEx 2nd Day or Next Day Shipping, plan on a delay in receiving your physical documents and kit materials. Additionally, kit materials are typically produced one to two days after we request them, before being shipped, but may take longer because of our supplier's holiday schedule.

 

If you need any of your order sooner than what is specified above or have any special requests, please call us.
