***NOTE: Division of Corporations has changed their ‘wait’ policy, June 5, 2019 – Couriers must drop off docs. and pick up the following working day.  This is not at the couriers discretion, but the Division of Corporations decision.  This is due to budget cut backs in the state of Florida, resulting in staff reduction.

***Documents received after 3:00 p.m.,  are processed the next working day, and if necessary, are then returned in your pre-paid envelope back to you the following day they are processed.

Our (Dept. of Transportation) IFTA representative is:  Haley Fillmon Long (850) 294-0960

The Process:

  • You have 2 options for filing your docs.:
  • OPTION – 1. Scanning Documents for filing: scan your docs. and e-mail to us, for immediate processing which saves you time and money. We charge $2.00 per page to print out your docs. for processing. These charges will be itemized on your invoice. We invoice you your filing fee and our service fee. (NOTE: apostil docs. must be originals, can only use option #2)
  • OPTION – 2 Send your docs. to us: via mail service (Fed Ex, USPS, UPS); see below for complete shipping instructions:
    • Prepare your documents  –   Please review the procedure for state filing process at: www.sunbiz.org; and choose the service you are seeking in the menu bar. For Apostil services, please check your notary information at: http://notaries.dos.state.fl.us/notproc7.html and include a money order, blank check, or cash (we are BONDED), for the correct amount for your document processing  (submitting a blank, signed check is fine too, and we will let you  know the exact amount paid to the office. 
  • NOTE:  if you do not know the exact amount that needs to be paid to the office, we ask you include a blank, signed check made out to the office your documents will be processed in, and we will include the bill with the check for your records.   We pay for your document process and are reimbursed by you prior to submission. If you have notarized docs:  make sure that your notary has a valid and readable stamp (do not smudge or embellish notary seal in any way) Make yourself a photocopy of ALL documents, for your records
  • After preparing your document(s) for shipping, UPS, Priority Overnight, FedEx, etc.  (we recommend a ‘trackable’ service, as the USPS isn’t the most reliable or fastest service); IF you need documents returned:  Prepare a second Pre-paid label for your return documents, make sure you complete the billing information, or document(s) will not be returned to you. A pre-paid label is fine as we have envelopes.
  • Place your documents in the envelope;  if applicable -place your return envelope in the envelope for the returned docs.
