2. The following corporations doing business in this state and that are subject to tax under chapter 143, 147, or 148, RSMo, shall file the statement required under subsection 3 of this section with the secretary of state:
(1) All publicly traded corporations;
(2) All financial corporations; and
(3) Any other corporation not described in subdivision (1) or (2) of this subsection if such corporation employs fifty or more full-time employees in this state as of the January first preceding the date a statement is required to be filed under this section, or if such corporation has sales in the United States in excess of ten million dollars in the fiscal year for which a statement is required to be filed under this section.
3. The statement required by this section shall contain the following information:
(1) The name of the corporation;
(2) The federal industry classification number;
(3) The name of the registered agent to accept service;

(5) The most recent assessed valuation of real and personal property located in this state and the amount of tax on such property;
(6) The corporation's business presence in this state, as reflected by information and data relating to the following apportionment factors, which shall be provided to the secretary of state whether or not the apportionment factor is used to calculate Missouri tax liability:
(a) The amount and percentage of sales within and without this state that are apportioned to this state;
(b) The amount and percentage of payroll expenses within and without this state that are apportioned to this state;
(c) The amount and percentage of real and personal property within and without this state that is apportioned to this state;

(8) Total taxable income apportioned to this state for the tax year for which a statement is required to be filed under this section;
(9) Total federal taxable income as reported to the Internal Revenue Service for the tax year for which a statement is required to be filed under this section.
4. For the fiscal year ending on June 30, 2007, the statement required under this section shall be filed on or before March 15, 2008. For each following fiscal year, the statement shall be filed at the same time as the corporation's state income tax returns are filed, but no later than March fifteenth of the following year. If a corporation files an amended return, the corporation shall file a revised statement under this section within sixty calendar days after the amended return is filed.

Any rule or portion of a rule, as that term is defined in section 536.010, RSMo, that is created under the authority delegated in this section shall become effective only if it complies with and is subject to all of the provisions of chapter 536, RSMo, and, if applicable, section 536.028, RSMo. This section and chapter 536, RSMo, are nonseverable and if any of the powers vested with the general assembly pursuant to chapter 536, RSMo, to review, to delay the effective date, or to disapprove and annul a rule are subsequently held unconstitutional, then the grant of rulemaking authority and any rule proposed or adopted after August 28, 2006, shall be invalid and void.
