The Massachusetts Secretary of State Corporations Division recently began accepting conformed signatures on all electronically submitted filings, including fax filings.
Original hand signatures are still required when submitting documents over the counter or via mail in direct to state. Certain non-standard circumstances will call for over counter submission. This can occur when Massachusetts needs to see 2 separate documents submitted in tandem in order to properly convey a transaction.
For any questions, please contact us and we will be happy to advise.
