Title III Equity Crowdfunding Legal Overview
Title III, or regulation CF, is equity crowdfunding. Any sale, or offering by an initiator under a million dollars, can be done, but there are limits. No individual can invest, the greater of 2,000 or 5% of the net worth of the investor. If the annual income, or net worth of the investor, is less than 100,000, you are limited to the amount you can invest. If either of those amounts are above 100,000, you are allowed to invest up to 10% of your annual income.

All state blue sky laws that involve the registration of securities are eliminated, but that doesn't mean you don't have to pay a filing fee for certain things. There are two exemptions where states can still charge fees. First, if your company is domiciled in a state, that state can charge fees. Second, if you are selling more than 50% of your stock in a state, then they can charge you a notice filing fee.
