Nevada Secretary of State Changes

September 30, 2019

The NV Secretary of State continues to deal with delays and backlog due to the new business services system that was recently implemented.  As a result of the volume of filings waiting to be processed, the state has temporarily eliminated the 24 hour expedite service option for all Corporate and UCC requests.
1-hour and 2-hour expedite options are still available but turnaround times are exceeding the 1 or 2 hour service.  Evidence can be expected to be returned between same day to 24 hours when using these options, however the state reserves the right to extend these turnaround times in order to accommodate the volume and ongoing system issues.

Federal Tax Lien searches must be submitted over-the-counter currently as those records are maintained on a separate index from the UCCs and not available on the state's Silverflume portal.  Over-the-counter requests are subject to the current 6-8 week turnaround time and only 1 or 2-hour expedite options are available as noted above.
