If the business will operate as a sole proprietorship or a partnership, an assumed name certificate for each name (or deviation of that name) the business will use must be on file with the county clerk in each county in which the business will operate. If the business will operate as a corporation, and the business will be identified by a name other than the corporate name, an assumed name certificate (D.B.A.) will need to be filed with each county in which the business will operate under the assumed name.
The filing fee is $24.00 and .50 for each partner after the first. Add a $2.00 Acknowledgements fee if the deputy takes the acknowledgment instead of a notary.
FILINGS MUST BE IN PERSON AT THE LOCATION ABOVE. THERE ARE COMPUTERS AVAILABLE TO CHECK THE NAME DATABASE PRIOR TO FILING. THE COUNTY CLERK WILL NOT DO A DATABASE SEARCH VIA PHONE.
