Nevada: Secretary of State Temporarily Eliminates 24-Hour Expedite Option

We wanted to update our clients on the status of the Nevada Secretary of State’s (NV SOS) efforts to process the backlog of filings that resulted from its system upgrade which took place in late July. We have been notified by the NV SOS that due to the significant backlog of corporate filings and business license renewals they have stopped accepting 24-hour expedite requests.

One- and 2-hour expedite options are still available for urgent matters; however, their turnaround times are not expected to be 1- or 2-hours, respectively. The NV SOS reserves the right to extend these expedite periods in times of extreme volume, staff shortages or equipment malfunction. Due to the significant backlog, our team is predicting that 1-hour filings will most likely be processed same day and that 2-hour filings will be returned next day. There are also additional fees associated with these expedite options.

The Nevada Secretary of State’s customer service division is available Monday thru Friday, 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. at 775.684.5708.
