Hello, and thank you for submitting your question.

To dissolve a C Corp in CA, you need to hold a shareholder meeting and vote to dissolve the corp. When that's been done, the consent to dissolve needs to be entered in the corporations records. Following that, you can file a Certificate of Election to Wind Up and Dissolve with the Secretary of State; however, it's not required if the vote to dissolve is unanimous.

Once the corporation's obligations have been taken care of, and the assets have been distributed, file a Certificate of Dissolution with the SOS. The form you'll need is "DISS STK". You can download a fillable version of the form by going to Google and typing in "Form DISS STK".

Thank you for the opportunity to serve you; if you need additional assistance, please let me know.
