SECTION 130.130 DATE OF FILING
Section 130.130 Date of Filing
a) Except as otherwise specified in Section 4, 5, 6, 7 or 8 of the Act, the date of filing of any document required to be filed with the Securities Department shall be the date of delivery of the document and any required fee to the Securities Department in Springfield or Chicago, Illinois, as specified in Section 130.120 of this Part, or:
1) if transmitted through the United States mail, shall be deemed filed with the Secretary on the date shown by the post office cancellation mark stamped upon the envelope or other wrapper containing the document or fee;
2) if mailed but not received by the Secretary, or if received but without a cancellation mark or with the cancellation mark illegible or erroneous, shall be deemed filed with the Secretary on the date it was mailed, but only if the sender establishes by competent evidence that the document or fee was deposited, properly addressed, in the United States mail on or before the date on which it was required or was due. In cases in which the document or fee was mailed but not received, the sender must also submit, or pay to, the Secretary a duplicate document or fee, or both, as the case may be, within 30 days after written notification of nonreceipt of the document or fee is given by the Secretary to the person claiming to have sent the document or fee;
3) if a document or fee is sent by United States registered mail, certified mail or certificate of mailing, a record authenticated by the United States Postal Service of such registration, certification or certificate shall be considered competent evidence that the document or fee was mailed on the date shown on the record;
4) if transmitted electronically, it shall be deemed filed with the Secretary on the date the information that is inscribed or stored electronically becomes retrievable in perceivable form to the Securities Department.
b) A document may not be deemed to be filed with the Secretary unless all requirements of the Act with respect to such filing have been complied with and the required fee has been paid.
