CTA Compliance Team

On March 1, 2024, a lower Alabama federal court held that the Corporate Transparency Act, which requires certain businesses to file a BOI Report with FinCEN that includes information about their beneficial owners, is unconstitutional. Importantly, this ruling DOES NOT affect the legal obligation of entities formed in California, Nevada, or Delaware (among other states) to file their BOI Report within the timeframes specified below at this time.  We are monitoring the development of this and similar court actions across the nation and will continue to provide information about them to those who have indicated a desire to receive this information from us.
