Milwaukee, WI – February 1, 2013 – The Wisconsin Department of Financial Institutions reports that business owners have been asking about a form that recently went out to corporations in Wisconsin. Clarifying that the Annual Minutes Form sent from Corporate Records Service is not a form required by the DFI, or any other state agency, the DFI noted also that the company sending out the notices is not currently registered with the DFI. Officials from several other states have also cautioned business owners about the mailing. The bottom line, according to Paul Holzem, Administrator for the DFI’s Division of Corporate and Consumer Services, is to make sure you are at least receiving some legitimate service in return if you do elect to fill out and return the form.
