An incredible resource for information on Arizona businesses. Here's the direct link for business name search:

Find out who owns a business, look up corporate records. Also find links here to Arizona Corporation Commission records, like investigations and business-license discipline records. The site's a repository for reams of documents related to the ACC's role as energy-industry regulator. There's just more stuff here than you can imagine about local businesses.

9.) The SEC's Edgar site

If the company you are looking up is a public company, you can find another entire universe of filings on it through the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission's Edgar lookup site. This contains SEC filings that detail everything from the CEO's salary to accounting records.

Been a fan of the Maricopa County Recorded Docs site since it went up.

Just making an observation here. If you don't know how to accurately look up info and be able to understand what you are reading..........it isn't looking up info, it's jumping to conclussions. Legal talk is confusing enough without a lawyer to explain it, trying to interpret it by yourself doesn't always mean you came up with facts. (Everybody has probably misinterpreted something at least once or twice........I know I have)
