Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
If you do not dissolve the corporation with the secretary of state
you would be liable to pay renewal fees and any minimum franchise taxes that might be due. If you do not want the corporation any longer, you can file articles of dissolution with the secretary of state and they will close your company registration and you would not owe anything in following years.
If you want to keep the corporation registered, then you can do so and would pay the yearly renewal fees and if no income is made on the corporation, you would still have to file a tax return showing it is not earning anything at all, which is still a cost to you and work for you to do.
