NOTICE TO THE PUBLIC
REGARDING RECEIPT NOTICES
We apologize for the delay in releasing this information. Due to a significant increase of incoming mail at the Service Center, your receipt notice, acknowledging acceptance of your application or petition, may be delayed.
We are expanding our fee receipting capabilities by adding more contract staff, additional data entry workstations and expanded hours of operation. The chart below indicates what applications/petitions are experiencing a delay and the approximate dates the mailroom is currently processing. We regret any inconvenience this situation has caused you. Please allow 5 – 7 business days from the date shown to actually receive your notice in the mail.
If your check or money order has not yet been cashed, please do not cancel it. Canceling your payment could result in the amount being processed as a bounced check and you may be issued a bill automatically with a $30.00 processing fee.
