UCC / Federal Tax Lien Search
The Office of the Clerk provides Internet access to the
Clerk's Information System, an electronic mainframe database that contains
most information on file at the Commission for Uniform Commercial Code financing
statements and federal tax liens. This information can be searched by the name of
the debtor or taxpayer, or by the file number/document control number (DCN). The
file number/DCN is a number assigned internally by the Clerk’s Office once a filing
has been processed.
Internet access to CIS performs optimally with Internet Explorer while in the Compatibility View mode. Compatibility View settings for Internet Explorer can be found under the Tools menu option. Other browsers may produce unpredictable results. Scripting options for your browser must be enabled to use CIS. First-time users are encouraged to
review the user documentation.
Images of UCC filings and tax liens are not available for electronic or online viewing.
Collateral information is not available in CIS but can be obtained if a search is
ordered and the associated fee paid.
