The applicability of s. 168.33 is dependent on future enhancements to the electronic filing system and therefore no e-filing direction has been made under s. 168.33(1)(b) to allow for submission of a supporting document under this section. An application that includes a supporting document must be certified by a designate under s. 168.43.
