A federal law called the Corporate Transparency Act that became effective on January 1, 2024, requires all “reporting companies” to file a report with FinCEN that discloses information about the reporting company, all of its beneficial owners, and the reporting company's “applicant” if the company was formed after 2023.  If a reporting company fails to file a FinCEN BOI report on or before the report’s due date the U.S. Treasury can fine the company $500 a day until the company files its report.  The CTA also has criminal penalties of up to two years in jail for willful violations of the law.
