Instructions for voluntary dissolution of a New York corporation (TR-125)

A New York State business corporation may voluntarily dissolve. By doing so, the corporation ends its obligation to pay future taxes and fees to New York State. The dissolution process involves both the Tax Department and the New York Department of State.


New York business corporations must pay franchise and other taxes to New York State. The corporation pays the taxes in exchange for the privilege of exercising its corporate franchise, doing business, employing capital, owning or leasing property, or maintaining an office in the state.

When a New York business corporation decides it will no longer conduct business in New York, it will want to be sure that it ends its obligation to pay state taxes and fees. The process of voluntary dissolution:

  • brings the existence of the corporation to an end; and
  • ends the corporation’s obligation to pay future state taxes and fees to New York State.

Sample Document-Destruction Policy-Lawyerist

“…Having a formal document destruction policy is a smart move for many reasons. It greatly streamlines the process of analyzing whether each file should stay in storage or be destroyed, because you have already gone through the issues and identified the rules to apply. It can actually reduce your malpractice premiums to have such a policy in place, and it allows you to point to that policy if anyone ever questions why a file has been destroyed. It also provides a basis for setting client expectations on file retention from the opening of a new engagement through the destruction of the file…”

Why are lawyers killing themselves? –

Editor’s Note:  I valued reading Finis Price’s materials and was startled by his sudden death.  I was even more surprised upon reading this article to learn that he died via suicide.

(CNN) — Finis Price III was a successful Kentucky lawyer, a popular professor, and a sought after technology consultant. He also enjoyed a marriage so close that his wife was also his business partner. The good days ended abruptly when he jumped to his death in 2012.
“Finis was my best friend since we were kids,” Heather Price said of her husband, who taught at Chase Law School at Northern Kentucky University and managed a thriving practice until his death at age 37.
“I intentionally presented it as an accident. The taboo and stigma of suicide was too much for me to handle,” she said.
One by one, state by state, bar associations say the tally is rising: Lawyers are killing themselves. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention provided CNN with the latest available data on suicide deaths by profession. Lawyers ranked fourth when the proportion of suicides in that profession is compared to suicides in all other occupations in the study population (adjusted for age).They come right behind dentists, pharmacists and physicians.

WordPerfect Viewer returns to LawBox – iPhone J.D.

Jeff Richardson  “…For three years, Corel sold an iPhone version of the app for $4.99 and an iPad version for $5.99.  Unfortunately, Corel did not introduce very many new features during that time — just some minor things like adding folders in late 2012.

As of January of 2014, the app is now back in the hands of LawBox, the original developer.  California attorney Nicholas Zeltzer, the founder of LawBox, tells me that he has already updated the app for iOS 7, and I see that the app does now have a new look on both the iPad and iPhone…”
