This week we are highlighting the Business, Finance & Economy 50-State guide from the State Agency Databases Project. This guide lists 47 states that are known to have publicly searchable, state agency produced databases in this subject area.
Three databases from this compilation are:
Charitable Organizations System – May be searched by name, dba or purpose. Records indicate whether a charity is currently registered and provides address, contact information and purpose. Information is self reported and AZ Secretary of State does not determine whether a charity is legitimate.
Publicly Traded Disclosure Search – This search allows you to search for all publicly traded corporations that have filed a Corporate Disclosure Statement with the Secretary of State, search the full text of information contained in a specific statement, and view abstracts of reported information. Searchable by corporation name, the names of officers, or an auditor name; there is also an advanced search.
Unlicensed Search for Construction Contractor – From the web page, “will provide a listing of public complaints against persons or entities of construction contractors that, at the time of the complaint, were not licensed by the Department of Business and Professional Regulation.”
