(b) The first annual report of a domestic corporation formed prior to January 1, 2020, shall be filed not later than two years after the date on which the corporation filed its certificate of incorporation. The first annual report of a corporation formed on or after January 1, 2020, shall be filed not later than ninety days after the date on which such corporation filed its certificate of incorporation.

Upon request of a corporation, the Secretary of the State may grant an exemption from the requirement to file an annual report by electronic transmission if the corporation does not have the capability to file by electronic transmission or make payment in an authorized manner by electronic means or if other good cause is shown.
(c) Each annual report shall set forth: (1) The name of the corporation; (2) the principal office of the corporation or, in the case of a foreign corporation (A) the address of the principal office of the foreign corporation in the state under the laws of which it is incorporated, (B) the address of the executive offices of the foreign corporation, and (C) the address of the principal office of the foreign corporation in this state, if any; (3) the electronic mail address, if any, of the corporation; (4) the name and address of the registered agent; (5) the names and respective business and residence addresses of the directors and officers of the corporation, except that if good cause is shown, the Secretary of the State may accept business addresses in lieu of business and residence addresses of the directors and officers of the corporation; and (6) such additional information, including the North American Industry Classification System Code, that the Secretary deems pertinent for determining the principal purpose of the corporation. For the purposes of this subsection, a showing of good cause shall include, but not be limited to, a showing that public disclosure of the residence addresses of the corporation's directors and officers may expose the personal security of such directors and officers to significant risk.

The Secretary of the State shall deliver to each domestic corporation at its principal office or electronic mail address, as shown by the Secretary's records, and to each foreign corporation authorized to transact business in this state at its executive offices or electronic mail address, as last shown by the Secretary's records, notice that the annual report is due, but failure to receive such notice shall not relieve a corporation of the requirement of filing the report as provided in this section.
