State law requires regulated utility and transportation companies to file annual reports and pay regulatory fees to The Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission (UTC). If you operated at any time during the reporting year, you are required to file an annual report.
File early to make sure you have enough time to fix any issues. Submitting your report does not mean it is considered complete.
File the correct annual report form by industry.
- The UTC must receive your complete report and regulatory fee payment by May 1. Please Note: If May 1 falls on a weekend, unless you are filing your report and making your payment electronically, you must make sure your report and payment reaches the UTC offices the business day before May 1.
- The UTC reviews reports in the order received.
- If your report is incomplete or there are questions, staff will send an email to the report contact.
- Please do not electronically file and mail your report.
When submitting your report and making your payment electronically, you will receive a confirmation number for each submission. Print or keep an electronic copy of the confirmation for records.
