Principal Address (used to generate the geocoded column: Location), however it is not always guaranteed to be the physical location of the business entity’s main operation. Some business can be registered in CO but have an address outside of the state, may list a po box, there are businesses with locations that don’t have a public access entry point). Mailing Address is the mailing address of the business owner, and the Agent address may be the address of the agent or in some cases has the same address as the business owner. The year in Entity Form Date is corroborated by the first four digits of the Entity Id.
