Effectiveness of Filing: The withdrawal of registration of a limited liability partnership becomes effective as of the date of filing by the secretary of state (option A). However, pursuant to sections 4.052, 4.053 and 152.802 of the BOC the effectiveness of the instrument may be delayed to a date not more than ninety (90) days from the date the instrument is signed (option B). The effectiveness of a withdrawal cannot be delayed to a date that goes beyond the expiration date of the current registration. On the filing of a document with a delayed effective date, the computer records of the secretary of state will be changed to show the filing of the document, the date of the filing, and the future date on which the document will be effective. In addition, at the time of such filing, the status of the entity will be shown as "withdrawn" on the records of the secretary of state.
Execution: For a general partnership, the notice of withdrawal must be signed by a majority-ininterest of the partners, or by one or more partners authorized by a majority-in-interest of the partners. For a limited partnership, any general partner may sign. The notice of withdrawal need not be notarized. However, before signing, please read the statements on this form carefully.

The offense is a Class A
misdemeanor unless the person's intent is to harm or defraud another, in which case the offense is a state jail felony.
