(1) Recite the name and address of the corporation and the effective date of its administrative dissolution;
(2) State that the ground or grounds for dissolution either did not exist or have been eliminated;

(4) Contain a certificate from the Department of Revenue reciting that all taxes owed by the corporation have been paid.
(b) If the Secretary of State determines that the application contains the information required by subsection (a) and that the information is correct, he or she shall cancel the certificate of dissolution and prepare a certificate of reinstatement that recites his or her determination and the effective date of reinstatement, file the original of the certificate and deliver a copy to the judge of probate for filing, and serve a copy on the corporation under Section 10A-1-5.31, 10A-1-5.35, or 10A-1-5.36.
