States with Publication Requirements for Other Corporate Filings

*Effective January 1st, 2017, the location of an Arizona company affects whether publication is required. If the principal place of business is in a county with more than 800,000 people (currently Maricopa or Pima), publication is no longer required. The Secretary of State is maintaining a webpage with notification of the filing instead. If the principal place of business is in a less populated county, publication is still required.
