Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

805 ILCS 180/5-55

    (805 ILCS 180/5-55)
    Sec. 5-55. Filing in Office of Secretary of State.
    (a) Whenever any provision of this Act requires a limited liability company to file any document with the Office of the Secretary of State, the requirement means that:
        (1) the original document, executed as described in
Section 5-45, and, if required by this Act to be filed in duplicate, one copy (which may be a signed carbon or photocopy) shall be delivered to the Office of the Secretary of State;
        (2) all fees and charges authorized by law to be
collected by the Secretary of State in connection with the filing of the document shall be tendered to the Secretary of State; and
        (3) unless the Secretary of State finds that the
document does not conform to law, he or she shall, when all fees have been paid:
            (A) endorse on the original and on the copy the
word "Filed" and the month, day, and year of the filing thereof;
            (B) file in his or her office the original of the
document; and
            (C) return the copy to the person who filed it or
to that person's representative.
    (b) If another Section of this Act specifically prescribes a manner of filing or signing a specified document that differs from the corresponding provisions of this Section, then the provisions of the other Section shall govern.
    (c) Whenever any provision of this Act requires a limited liability company that is a bank or a savings bank to file any document, that requirement means that the filing shall be made exclusively with the Department of Financial and Professional Regulation or, if the bank or savings bank is organized under federal law, with the appropriate federal banking regulator at such times and in such manner as required by the Department or federal regulator.
