(b) Qualification as a limited liability partnership, whether pursuant to an original statement
or a renewal statement, is renewed if, during the 60 day period preceding the
date the initial
statement or renewal statement otherwise would have expired, the partnership
files with the
Secretary of State a renewal statement. A renewal statement expires one year
after the date an
original statement would have expired if the last renewal of the statement had
not occurred. Proof of the satisfaction of the Secretary of State that, prior to the expiration date, the renewal statement together with all fees prescribed by this Act was deposited in the United States mail in a sealed envelope, properly addressed, with postage prepaid, shall be deemed a compliance with this requirement. If the Secretary of State finds that the report conforms to the requirements of this Act, he or she shall file it. If the Secretary of State finds that it does not conform, he or she shall promptly return it to the limited liability partnership for any necessary corrections, in which event expiration will not occur if the statement is corrected to conform to the requirements of this Act and returned to the Secretary of State within 30 days of the date the report was returned for corrections.
(c) The Secretary of State shall renew the registration of any limited
liability partnership of
any partnership that timely submits a renewal statement with the required fee.
