Annual Business Renewal

Every volunteer fire relief association must register annually as a nonprofit corporation with the Minnesota Secretary of State’s Office. If a relief association fails to register or to notify the Secretary of State of corporate name or address changes, the Secretary of State may reject the registration and dissolve the relief association’s nonprofit corporation status.

A relief association can learn of its status by going to the Secretary of State’s website. Relief associations with a renewal due date displayed as "12/31/2024", must complete the registration before December 31, 2024, or face possible dissolution of the association’s nonprofit corporation status. If a relief association has completed its registration for this calendar year, the renewal due date displayed on the Secretary of State’s website will read "12/31/2025".
