It the LLC has failed to file its annual report or not paid its annual taxes or fees for three years what powers do it have ?
The LLC did not do 1 and 2 for six stright years, and did not get suspended or forfeited in California, (1) they did fail to file the required Statement of Information for six stright years; and (2) They did not pay the Franchise Tax Board and they did not file a tax return and they fail to pay taxes, penalties or interest. The LLC canceled it self, and it still owes over $10,000.00 to the state.So does this still mean that the entity in effect, ceases to legally exist during the six year time period above and during that time it was still unable to defend or maintain an action in court, enter in to contracts etc. because this business entity's powers, rights and privileges were forfeited in California even if the state had not taken any action against them during this period. can you please cite some case law on this.
