Search Tips:

The search will return records matching any of the words you enter. So, if you enter "office supplies", you'll find all the records with the word "office" and all the records with the word "supplies".
If you're entering multiple words, add "+" before a word to make it required. Entering "+office +supply" will return only the records containing both of the words. "+Office supply" would return records with the word "office" but not the word "supply".

You may use "*" as a wild card. Searching for "suppl*" will find both "supply" and "supplies".

You may search for a phrase by surrounding it with double-quote marks. Don't use the plus, minus or asterisk symbols inside quotes.

To insure you conduct a thorough search, begin by keying in the FIRST name of your business name to produce more choices.

If the business name begins with "A" and "An" etc., search both with and without that word.
