Step 1 – Go to the Pennsylvania Secretary of State.
Step 2 – You may use the default Search By Name or By Business Entity ID Number.
Helpful Tip – When make a query by name, it is highly recommended that you include as many terms as possible relating to the corporation you are trying to find. The database will return all matching entities that are included with the terms entered.
Type in the ReCaptcha – When I tried this in Google Chrome (Web Browser), it did not work at the time.
