Business Name - Help!

We have chosen 'Lake Country Property Care' as the name of the business. Where do you go to register that name and get a tax ID and so forth?

I want to be sure we are legit from the start so any help would be greatly appreciated!

there are a few hoops to jump thru ....but it is a painless operation ...a good start is your local Better Business Bureau ....not to join ...but to get any local info on requirements for lawn maintance .....

your local tax collector office should be helpful in answering other local tax related ??? (go on a mid week day after lunch ...when the ladies have nothing to do)....they should have a form to fill out to to make sure your "factious name" is not in use & file your name

..you may have luck on the web using "Search by Corporation Name Your State" ...also

best to get some advice from a CPA .....go to your bank see what they say you need to open an account

call a few local insurance companies for rates ....get the most you can afford

Good Luck ;->
