View Document Images
Images of various business entity, Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) and federal tax lien documents filed in the Clerk’s Office are available online to the public, in PDF format, at no charge.
The database of business entity images includes documents filed on and after January 1, 1997. The database of UCC and federal tax lien images begins with documents filed on October 1, 2003. The databases do not include documents that may have been submitted to the Clerk’s Office but were not accepted for filing or were subsequently withdrawn.
Business Entity Images
To view business entity filings online, a SCC identification number (SCC ID) is required. The SCC ID number is a unique number assigned by the SCC to each entity of record in the Clerk's Office. A SCC ID number can be obtained from Business Entity Search in the SCC eFile system or from the Name Search all Entities in the Clerk's Information System (CIS) by searching on the entity's name.
UCC / Federal Tax Lien Images
To view UCC or federal tax lien images, a file number or document control number (DCN) is required. The file number/DCN is a number assigned internally by the Clerk’s Office once a filing has been processed. The file number/DCN can be obtained by searching on the debtor or taxpayer name, using the UCC Filings by Debtor/Taxpayer search in the CIS
