Business Services Fee Changes

Effective November 1, 2008

In 2003, as the result of a decision by the governor and state legislature, the Secretary of State’s office became a fully fee-funded agency. Because of this, from time-to-time it is necessary for our office to adjust fees in order to continue full operation.

Please know that we continue to look for ways to cut administrative costs so we can pass those savings on to our customers. In every case, the new fee charged reflects the statutory requirement of the law, as well as the lowest fee possible to perform the duties of this agency.

We strive to be the least complicated, most accessible agency in state government, and are committed to customer satisfaction. We regret that the new fee structure will affect our customers, but we hope you will understand. Please feel free to contact us with any questions at (785) 296-4564.
