Should name of C corp be in Uppercase for state tax return or CamelCase is OK?

Asked over 2 years ago - Clairton, PA

I know state of Delaware requires company name be all in uppercase in the certificate of incorporation....But does it matter if corporate name is in Uppercase or CamelCase when filing for state tax return? I write my company's name in CamelCase everywhere, but it is all in uppercase in the certificate of incorporation.

Thanks,

    Answered . CamelCase is a new term for me. Frankly, though I always put names in upper case when filing in DE as a matter of style, I have never seen a directive requiring it.

    In any event, if the tax return is accurate I do not think you will have a problem regardless of case.
