I have a small business (S Corporation) and have had it for 5 years, but would now like to permanently close it by year end. What would I need to do for both Federal and State to dissolve it. Thank you

Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

You have to file articles of dissolution with the secretary of state, which is a form from the secretary of state saying the corporation has voted to close and that all taxes and debts of the corporation have been paid up to date. Once you do that the secretary of state will send you a certificate of dissolution which you attach a copy of to your final state and federal tax returns.
