(a) Each professional corporation organized under the laws of this state shall file with the secretary of state a written business entity information report stating the prescribed information concerning the corporation at the close of business on the last day of its tax period next preceding the date of filing, but if any such corporation's tax period is other than the calendar year it shall give notice thereof to the secretary of state prior to December 31 of the year it commences such tax period.

(b) The report shall be filed biennially, as determined by the year that the professional corporation filed its formation documents. A professional corporation that filed formation documents in an even-numbered year shall file a report in each even-numbered year.* A professional corporation that filed formation documents in an odd-numbered year shall file a report in each odd-numbered year. The report shall be filed after the close of the professional corporation's tax period but not later than at the time prescribed by law for filing the corporation's annual Kansas income tax return.

The official title or position of the individual signing the report shall be designated. The fact that an individual's name is signed on such report shall be prima facie evidence that such individual is authorized to sign the report on behalf of the corporation. The report shall be subscribed by the individual as true, under penalty of perjury. Upon request by the regulatory board that licenses the shareholders described in the report, a copy of the report shall be forwarded to the regulatory board.
