I've complied a list of all 50 states showing which state's require the company to be licensed by that state, and which one's allow other state's licenses.

** This is just preliminary *** There may be changes to it.

States that require internet based pdl's to be licensed by that state:

Alabama

Alaska

Arizona

California

Colorado

DC

Deleware

Florida

Hawaii

Idaho

Illinois

Indiana

Kansas

Kentucky

Lousiana

Maine

Michigan

Minnesota
Please see THIS LINK for changes in the MN law, updated on 7/7/2009 by Shazzers.

Mississippi

Missouri

Montana

Nebraska

Nevada

New Hampshire

New Mexico

North Dakota

Ohio

Oklahoma

Oregon


Pennsylvania (See article on the last page)

South Carolina

South Dakota

Texas

Utah

Washington

Wisconsin - If the online company solicited you

Wyoming



In the above states the internet payday loan company must be licensed by that state and follow that state's laws.




The following state allow an internet based payday loan company to lend legally as long as it is licensed in any US State. They would need to follow the laws of the state they are licensed out of, not the state the consumer is in.

Arkansas

Rhode island

Tennessee

Wisconsin - If you found the company online by a search or other means

PDL's are illegal, but CSO's are legal.

CSO's are different from pdl's, and are under totally different laws. So pdl's can be illegal and CSO's legal in the same state.

Goudah...help me...I am not sure, as in the case of Maryland, how/when to determine if it is a CSO or PDL. Maryland says that a CSO doesn't have to be licensed, ergo, no record of them on the MD site. So a person could easily interpret that a lender is not licensed and therefore is not legal. They may confuse it as being a PDL lender.
