Remittance shall be made in the form prescribed by the tax commissioner, including electronic funds transfer if required by section 5747.44 of the Revised Code.

A domestic qualifying entity shall not dissolve, and a foreign qualifying entity shall not withdraw or retire from business in this state, without filing the tax returns and paying the taxes charged for the year in which such dissolution or withdrawal occurs.

(C) The annual return required by this section shall be signed by the qualifying entity's trustee or other fiduciary, or president, vice-president, secretary, treasurer, general manager, general partner, superintendent, or managing agent in this state. The annual return shall contain the facts, figures, computations, and attachments that result in the tax charged by section 5733.41 or 5747.41 of the Revised Code. Each qualifying entity also shall file with its annual return all of the following:

(1) The full name and address of each qualifying investor or qualifying beneficiary unless the qualifying entity submits such information in accordance with division (D) of this section;

The tax commissioner may adopt rules governing the format for the transmission of such information. The tax commissioner may exempt a qualifying entity or a class of qualifying entities from the requirements imposed by this division.

(E) Upon good cause shown, the tax commissioner may extend the period for filing any return required to be filed under this section or section 5747.43 or 5747.44 of the Revised Code and for transmitting any information required to be transmitted under those sections. The tax commissioner may adopt rules relating to extensions of time to file and to transmit. At the time a qualifying entity pays any tax imposed under section 5733.41 or 5747.41 of the Revised Code or estimated tax as required under section 5747.43 of the Revised Code, the qualifying entity also shall pay interest computed at the rate per annum prescribed by section 5703.47 of the Revised Code on that tax or estimated tax, from the time the tax or estimated tax originally was required to be paid, without consideration of any filing extensions, to the time of actual payment. Nothing in this division shall be construed to abate, modify, or limit the imposition of any penalties imposed for the failure to timely pay taxes under this chapter or Chapter 5733. of the Revised Code without consideration of any filing extensions.
