17-7678. Filing requirements; fees. (a) The original signed copy of articles of organization or any certificate to be filed pursuant to this act, shall be filed with the secretary of state, where the instrument shall be recorded in an electronic medium. A person who executes articles of organization, a certificate or a statement as an agent or fiduciary shall not be required to exhibit evidence of the person's authority as a prerequisite to filing. Any signature on any articles of organization or certificate authorized to be filed with the secretary of state under any provision of this act may be a facsimile, a conformed signature or an electronically transmitted signature. Unless the secretary of state finds that any filing does not conform to law, upon receipt of all filing fees required by law, the secretary of state shall:
(1) Certify that such document has been filed in the secretary of state's office by endorsing upon the electronically-recorded document the word "filed" and the date and hour of the filing; in the absence of actual fraud, this endorsement is conclusive of the date and time of its filing;
(2) record the endorsed document in an electronic medium and that electronic document shall become the original document; and
(3) return a copy of the recorded document, to the person who filed it or such person's representative.
(b) The articles of organization shall be amended as provided in a certificate of amendment or judicial decree of amendment upon the filing of the certificate of amendment or judicial decree of amendment with the secretary of state or upon the future effective date specified in the certificate of amendment. An inaccuracy in the articles of organization may be corrected by filing a certificate of correction with the secretary of state as provided in K.S.A. 17-7683, and amendments thereto. The articles of organization are canceled upon the filing with the secretary of state of a certificate of cancellation or certificate of merger or consolidation where the limited liability company is not the surviving or resulting entity or upon the future effective date of the certificate of cancellation or certificate of merger or consolidation.
(c) The fee required by this act shall be paid at the time of the filing of any articles of organization or any certificate to be filed pursuant to this act.
(d) The fee required by this act shall be paid for a certified copy of any paper on file pursuant to this act and the fee fixed pursuant to this act shall be paid for each page copied.
(e) The secretary of state may prescribe a telefacsimile communication fee in addition to any filing fees to cover the cost of such services. This fee must be paid prior to acceptance of a telefacsimile communication and shall be deposited into the information and copy service fee fund.
(f) Upon filing the articles of organization of a limited liability company organized to exercise powers of a professional association or professional corporation, the limited liability company shall file with the secretary of state a certificate by the licensing body, as defined in K.S.A. 74-146, and amendments thereto, of the profession involved that each of the members is duly licensed to practice that profession, and that the proposed company name has been approved.
