A: You are required to file a notice of winding up and publish a notice with two papers advising of this fact. The purpose of doing so is to protect you from any claims not pursued within the required timeframe. If you do not do this, then you may expose yourself to a claim being pursued at some point. While it may be technically possible to just file the termination of the articles of organization, you will be foregoing the additional protections from late claims being sought.
