The California Secretary of State is still working on applications for new businesses from last year. Businesses must wait six weeks or more for the the Secretary of State to process paperwork for new businesses, unless they pay an extra $350 fee to expedite the filing.
The Texas Secretary of State generally processes paperwork within 3-5 days, and Texas offers next day service for $25. When will California speed up paperwork for people trying to invest in California by creating jobs and tax revenue?
