CEMETERY TRUST FUND REPORTING
The Secretary of State is responsible for auditing certain cemetery merchandise and permanent maintenance trust funds.
Beginning January 1, 2012, new statewide laws that were passed during the 2011 legislative session went into effect. Certain cemeteries are required to submit quarterly reports and fees to the office. They are due within 30 days following the end of each quarter. A simplified 2011 annual report is still due at your normal annual filing time in 2012. The annual filing has been eliminated for the 2012 fiscal year and beyond.
For more information, including exemption eligibility rules, please visit our FAQ sheet. If you have questions, please contact us. We are committed to working with cemeteries to improve accountability and protect consumers. Thank you and welcome to the new site.
