Form 802--General Information (Periodic Report Nonprofit Corporation) The attached form is drafted to meet minimal statutory filing requirements pursuant to the relevant code provisions. This form and the information provided are not substitutes for the advice and services of an attorney and tax specialist. Commentary A nonprofit corporation is required by Section 22.357 of the Texas Business Organizations Code (BOC) to file a periodic report that lists the names and addresses of all directors and officers of the corporation. The Office of the Secretary of State may require a domestic nonprofit corporation or a foreign nonprofit corporation registered to transact business in this state to file a report not more than once every four years. The failure to file the report when due will result, after notice, in the involuntary termination of the domestic corporation or the revocation of the registration of the foreign corporation. Please note that a document on file with the Secretary of State is a public record that is subject to public access and disclosure. When providing address information for a director or officer, use a business or post office box address rather than a residence address if privacy concerns are an issue. Instructions for Form File Number: It is recommended that the file number assigned by the Secretary of State be provided to facilitate processing of the document. 1--Corporation Name: Provide the legal name of the corporation. Changes to the name of the corporation require an amendment to the certificate or registration of the corporation. See Additional Documentation instructions below. 2--Jurisdictional Information: Provide the state or other jurisdiction under the laws of which the corporation is formed. 3--Registered Agent: The registered agent can be either: (option A) a domestic entity or a foreign entity that is registered to do business in Texas; or (option B) an individual resident of the state. The corporation cannot act as its own registered agent; do not enter the entity name as the name of the registered agent. Consent: A person designated as the registered agent of an entity must have consented, either in a written or electronic form, to serve as the registered agent of the entity. Although consent is required, a copy of the person's written or electronic consent need not be submitted with the periodic report. The liabilities and penalties imposed by Sections 4.007 and 4.008 of the BOC apply with respect to a false statement in a filing instrument that names a person as the registered agent of an entity without that person's consent. (BOC § 5.207) 4--Registered Office Address: The registered office address must be located at a street address where service of process may be personally served on the entity's registered agent during normal business hours. Although the registered office is not required to be the entity's principal place of business, the registered office may not be solely a mailbox service or telephone answering service. (BOC § 5.201) Form 802 Page 1 of 5 American LegalNet, Inc. www.FormsWorkFlow.com 5--Principal Office Address: Provide the street or mailing address of the principal office of the corporation in the state or country under the laws of which the corporation is incorporated if the corporation is a foreign corporation. 6--Directors: Provide the name and address of each member of the board of directors. A corporation is generally managed by a board of directors. However, a corporation that has members may be managed by its members or by a board of directors. A minimum of three directors is required. If the space provided is insufficient, include the information as an attachment to this form for item 6. 7--Officers: Provide the name, address, and title of each officer. The officers of a corporation must include a president and a secretary and may also consist of one or more vice-presidents, a treasurer, and such other officers and assistant officers as may be deemed necessary. Any one person may serve in more than one office, except the offices of president and secretary. If the space provided is insufficient, include the information as an attachment to this form for item 7. Execution: Pursuant to Section 4.001 of the BOC, the periodic report must be signed by a person authorized by the BOC to act on behalf of the entity in regard to the filing instrument. Generally, a governing person or managerial official of the entity signs a filing instrument. The periodic report need not be notarized; however, before signing, please read the statements on this form carefully. The designation or appointment of a person as registered agent by an organizer or managerial official is an affirmation by the organizer or managerial official that the person named in the instrument as registered agent has consented to serve in that capacity. (BOC § 5.2011) A person commits an offense under Section 4.008 of the BOC if the person signs or directs the filing of a filing instrument the person knows is materially false with the intent that the instrument be delivered to the Secretary of State for filing. The offense is a Class A misdemeanor unless the person's intent is to harm or defraud another, in which case the offense is a state jail felony. Filing Fees: The filing fee for a periodic report for a nonprofit corporation is $5. If the corporation has forfeited its right to conduct affairs for failure to file the periodic report within thirty (30) days of the first notification, the fee is the original $5 plus a late fee of $1 per month or part of a month for one hundred twenty (120) days following the forfeiture, but not less than $5 nor more than $25. Additional Documentation: Name Change (optional): To change the name of the corporation at the same time of filing the required periodic report, an amendment (Form 424 or 412, as appropriate) and filing fee of $25 and Form 802 and filing fee (as stated in Filing Fees), must be submitted at the same time to the Reports Unit for filing. Reinstatement: If the report is not filed within the one hundred twenty (120) day period from the date of the second notification, the domestic corporation will be involuntarily terminated or the registration of the foreign corporation will be revoked. The corporation may be relieved of the involuntary termination or revocation and reinstated by filing the required periodic report (Form 802) and filing fee of $25.
