Annual Refiling Survey


Every three years, your state agency and the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics request that you verify general business information about your firm to help us maintain accurate records. Your cooperation is essential so that we are able to produce data that are complete, accurate, and timely.  To reduce costs and save tax dollars, this survey is now online and can be completed in about five minutes.
