Checking Corporate Records with the Office of the Idaho Secretary of State
Corporate ownership is verified by a link to the Idaho Secretary Of State Search For Business Entities. Determining whether the acknowledgement is correct is also verified with these records. For a Corporation, the initial check is made with the Articles of Incorporation and any subsequent amendments, which is followed up with the Annual Report for the current year. With these documents, it is possible to determine who the persons are that can sign for the corporation. This is not always accurate, as internal documents that are not filed may have an affect on the ability of officers to sign for the corporation. However, we are simply checking the documents of record.
This item is reviewed in conjunction with the Certificate of Owners, Acknowledgement, and the Assessor’s office ownership check.
