607.0125 Filing duties of the department.
(1) If a document delivered to the department for filing satisfies the requirements of s. 607.0120, the department shall file it.
(2) The department files a document by stamping or otherwise endorsing the document as filed, together with the department’s official title and the date and time of receipt. After filing a document, the department shall send a notice of the filing or a copy of the filing to the electronic mail address on file for the domestic or foreign corporation or its authorized representative or a copy of the filed document to the mailing address of such corporation or its authorized representative. If the record changes the electronic mail address of the corporation, the department must send such notice to the new electronic mail address and to the most recent prior electronic mail address. If the record changes the mailing address of the corporation, the department must send such notice to the new mailing address and to the most recent prior mailing address.

(4) The department’s duty to file documents under this section is ministerial. The filing or refusing to file a document does not:
(a) Affect the validity or invalidity of the document in whole or part;
(b) Relate to the correctness or incorrectness of information contained in the document;
(c) Create a presumption that the document does or does not conform to the requirements of this chapter or that the information contained in the document is correct or incorrect.
(5) If not otherwise provided by law and the provisions of this chapter, the department shall determine, by rule, the appropriate format for, number of copies of, manner of execution of, method of electronic transmission of, and amount of and method of payment of fees for, any document placed under its jurisdiction.
