The application must be signed by the entity and state or contain:

(2) the street address of the principal office of the entity and the name and address of its registered agent;

(3) the effective date of the entity's administrative dissolution;

(4) that the grounds for dissolution did not exist or have been cured; and

(5) a certificate of clearance from the department of state revenue reciting that taxes owed by the entity have been paid.

(b) To be reinstated, an entity must pay all fees, taxes, interest, and penalties that were due to the secretary of state at the time of the entity's administrative dissolution and all fees, taxes, interest, and penalties that would have been due to the secretary of state while the entity was dissolved administratively.

(c) If the secretary of state determines that an application under subsection (a) contains the required information, is satisfied that the information is correct, and determines that all payments required to be made to the secretary of state by subsection (b) have been made, the secretary of state shall:

(1) cancel the certificate of administrative dissolution and prepare a certificate of reinstatement that states the secretary of state's determination and the effective date of reinstatement; and

(2) file the certificate of reinstatement.

(d) When reinstatement under this section is effective, the following rules apply:

(1) The reinstatement relates back to and takes effect as of the effective date of the administrative dissolution.

(2) The domestic filing entity resumes carrying on its activities and affairs as if the administrative dissolution had never occurred.

(3) The rights of a person arising out of an act or omission in reliance on the dissolution before the person knew or had notice of the reinstatement are not affected.
