With the change in the UCC Article 9 filing rules to require filing in the location of the debtor instead of in the location of the collateral, the following list may be helpful in obtaining more information about the proper office or offices in which UCC financing statements should be filed for debtors who are "located" in various U.S. jurisdictions.

The listed addresses, telephone numbers, and web sites are as accurate as I could make them. If you find that some of them are inaccurate or have been changed, I would appreciate receiving updated information. Email can be sent to me at jkrahmer@krahmer.net

Unless they have been changed, the links contained in this list should take you directly to the various websites if you have an active internet connection while you are using this list. You will find a wide variation in the efficiency of downloading between the sites in different states. One irony is that some of the sites which brag about their "helping business to do business" orientation seem more devoted to graphics of various kinds than to actually helping you figure out how to do a UCC filing. Anyway, here is the list.
