New Filing Rejection Policy

Beginning July 1, 2019, UCC documents that are received in a state that is unsuitable for filing shall be rejected by the Department. The Department will not hold filings that are awaiting corrections, revisions, additional fees or information from the filer.

Any fees received that are intended for filing a rejected document will be refunded to the filer as soon as allowable under Department policy.

Rejected filings will need to be corrected and submitted anew, along with all appropriate fees for that filing.
