(a) A filing office shall refuse to accept a record for filing for a reason set forth
in Section 9.516(b) and may refuse to accept a record for filing only for a reason set forth in Section 9.516(b).
(b) If a filing office refuses to accept a record for filing, it shall communicate
to the person that presented the record the fact of and reason for the refusal and
the date and time the record would have been filed had the filing office accepted
it. The communication must be made at the time and in the manner prescribed by filing-office
rule, but in the case of a filing office described in Section 9.501(a)(2), in no event more than two business days after the filing office receives the record.
(c) A filed financing statement satisfying Sections 9.502(a) and (b) is effective, even if the filing office is required to refuse to accept it for filing
under Subsection (a). However, Section 9.338 applies to a filed financing statement providing information described in Section 9.516(b)(5) that is incorrect at the time the financing statement is filed.
(d) If a record communicated to a filing office provides information that relates
to more than one debtor, this subchapter applies as to each debtor separately.
