Many NJ businesses have recently received a solicitation concerning “Annual Corporate Records Form”. The mailing, which has an official appearance, solicits a fee of $125 in return for the recording of corporate shareholders, directors and officers. The Division of Revenue is alerting all New Jersey businesses that there is no requirement to file this form State of New Jersey, and the sender isn’t affiliated with the State.
New Jersey businesses that receive the mailing may report it by:
- Filing a complaint with the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs, PO Box 45025, Newark, NJ 07101 (complaint forms can be downloaded at http://www.nj.gov/oag/ca/complaint/ocp.pdf)
- Contacting the United States Postal Inspections Service to report mail fraud at (877) 876-2455 or http://postalinspectors.uspis.gov/forms/MailFraudComplaint.aspx.
