NONPROFIT CORPORATIONS: June 13, 2022 - CCFS is being updated to reflect changes to nonprofit corporation laws under RCW 24.03A. Currently, all nonprofit filings will be completed by paper forms while we work to provide online filing options. We are processing documents in the order received and there will be delays. If your documents were recently submitted, please disregard any automated late notices while we work to get all records updated on the website. Paper documents must be received in our office before their due date; once they have been entered into the system the record will reflect accurately. If you have any questions concerning this matter please let us know by using one of the methods available on the Contact Us page.

The Corporations and Charities Filing System (CCFS) recently went live with several updates and enhancements. These include the ability to "Opt-In" for email-only notices to replace paper mailings. This enhancement is environmentally friendly and helps improve overall efficiency.

One of many goals with CCFS is to help people transition to paperless when they want to do so. With this update, we can now provide paperless services that have been in high demand.

How does it work?

When you go online to register your legal entity or charitable organization, or when you file the required annual report or charities renewal, you can elect to receive email notifications only. This applies to paper formation documents and annual report notices that would be mailed. Once you have opted-in, all documents from our office to that legal entity or charity will be sent only via email.

To "Opt-In," you must provide an email address for the registered agent and for the principal office. The email you choose can be any valid email address that works for you and your operational structure.

As always, your entire CCFS history is available to view and print online for free from your CCFS filing history page.
