What if my asset list hasn’t changed from last year?

Visit www.DouglasFilesOnline.org and enter your FEIN and Account Number, view your assets and select the “Submit Asset List” button. No further action is necessary.  You may also check the “No Changes” box on your postcard notification and mail it back to our office.

What if I can’t log in?
