Speaking of Wisconsin, I filled out my annual corporate report for the state of Wisconsin. For most state filings, the annual report wants mainly to confirm some information about addresses and directors and officers, though the most important information they need is generally a credit card number to pay the annual fee. Wisconsin asks all kinds of other questions about paid in capital and assets in the state. It turns out that the annual fee a corporation has to pay in Wisconsin is based on one's capital investment in the state -- add more capital investment in their state, and the company has to pay a higher fee. Nice incentive.
