Report on Care & Maintenance Fund/Account (C&M) – Form 2: You must submit this report within three months after your fiscal year end. Exception: If your total C&M funds exceed $500,000 or you operate a funeral establishment on one or more of your cemeteries, you are required to submit an audit report for the C&M Fund within six months of your fiscal year end; if this applies to you, you may submit your Form 2 at the same time as your audit.
