Form 3305 - General Information (State Seal of Texas Quarterly Report) The attached form is drafted to meet minimal statutory filing requirements pursuant to the relevant code provisions. This form and the information provided are not substitutes for the advice and services of an attorney. Commentary The Texas Business & Commerce Code § 17.08 governs private use of the state seal. The code provides for use of the state seal for a commercial purpose if a license from the Secretary of State is obtained for that use. By statute, each licensee must pay a royalty fee to the State in an amount equal to three percent of the licensee's annual gross receipts related to the licensed use that is in excess of $5,000.00. The Secretary of State is granted authority to adopt rules relating to the use of the state seal by a licensed person. By rule, the Secretary of State requires the licensee to pay the royalty fees at the end of each quarter (1 TAC § 72.46). Form Instructions · Section 1 Licensee and Report Information: Enter the date the report is submitted and the certificate number from the license issued by the Secretary of State.
