As my clients probably noticed this year, the Iowa Secretary of State increased the corporate biennial report fees for Iowa Corporations in 2018 from $30 for online filing to $45. Iowa LLCs will have the same increase in 2019. My understanding is that the increased fees is an effort to pay for business technology upgrades. The increase is set to expire in 2022, at which time the fees are expected to revert to the previous amounts.

UCC filing fees increased as well with electronic filings increasing from $5 to $10.
