Free State PTA requires ALL local PTAs to be incorporated.

The advantage of incorporation is its ability to shield from liability.

Local PTAs not yet incorporated should contact Free State PTA for an Incorporation Packet or Revival Packet. Free State PTA has a specific form for local PTAs and can assist you in completing the necessary forms.

You can check your incorporation status at

  • Click on Business Data Search
  • Click on Business Entity Information
  • Enter either the PTA name as originally submitted OR enter your PTA’s Incorporation Number
  • When you see your PTA, click on general information for an overview of your PTA’s status

If you find that your charter has been forfeited, please contact Free State PTA for a revival packet. Any non-incorporated PTA, must also contact the Free State PTA office for the Articles of Incorporation form.

Corporate status in Maryland also requires that a Personal Property Return be filed each year.
