Blue Sky State Filings

Securities laws are regulated by the federal government, but each state enacts their own securities laws which are commonly referred to as "Blue Sky Laws" in an effort to supplement the federal securities laws and further regulate the sale and offering of securities. There are many similarities between Blue Sky Laws, however there are specific requirements that vary by state in regards to the required fee, as well as how securities may be registered. The Blue Sky state filings fees of Section 18(b)(4)(D) for Rule 506 offerings can be found below. For specific questions, please consult the State financial reporting department or your legal counsel.
