Goldwater Bank In Arizona Does NOT Accept Out Of State Business (Online) Accounts.

Called Goldwater Bank today (01/07/13) and they confirmed that they open new accounts only for in-state (Arizona) businesses, no others.  Other banks listed here do allow my condo HOA to open new savings and MM accounts and do pay higher interest rates, so we'll be doing that soon.
