Reports are Imperfect

The reports available at MSBStatus.com are the best we can make them. However, they are not necessarily accurate or up to date. For example, Alabama does not publish a list, instead researchers must purchase the list from the local regulator, which we do on a regular basis. No report shall be construed as a legal opinion on the MSB status of a given entity in any jurisdiction. For absolute certainty on the license status of an entity in a given jurisdiction, please correspond directly with the regulator in that jurisdiction.
