Failure to file the Notice, or to file same within the required time limits, does not affect availability of the exemption. The only consequence of failure to file is a fee penalty (based upon your fact: ~$2,500).
failure to file Notice is a felony. So, now that you know, you can't avoid filing, or you could be prosecuted criminally for ignoring the state securities laws.
Hope this helps.
