Beginning April 1, 2015, the New Mexico Secretary of State’s Office will start utilizing the Conversion of Checks to ACH banking services through Wells Fargo Fiscal Agent Banking Services. This service evaluates checks for conversion eligibility and then, if applicable, converts the checks to an ACH debit transaction. The ACH transaction is then charged to the consumer's bank account instead of the paper check. This is official 30 day notification to our customers, taxpayers, and other payees that your checks received for payment may be converted to an ACH debit transaction.
''When you provide a check as payment to the Secretary of State, you authorize the State of New Mexico to either use information from your check to make a one-time electronic fund transfer from your account or to process the payment as a check transaction.”
Effective July 1, 2013, the Corporations Bureau of the NM Public Regulation Commission was transferred to the Business Services Division of the Office of the New Mexico Secretary of State in Santa Fe, New Mexico. This move is a result of a Constitutional Amendment that was passed by the electorate in the November 2012 General Election and subsequent enabling legislation passed during the 2013 legislative session that now provides the Secretary of State (SOS) statutory authority to charter corporations.
