    Yes, that's what I did. I went to the County Recorder and filled out the DBA (Doing Business As) paperwork. It cost me $10.50.


    If you had an accountant help you out then more than likely there is something I didn't do correctly. I don't know. When I first started I called the State Office and they told me to contact the county I work in. They (state office) told me I didn't need to do anything with them. :confused: Now, the same year I started my own business, the guy I previously worked for went to the State and registered his name. He told me I should do that so someone else couldn't take my name. I called the State again and was told the same thing as before. :dizzy: I then got busy and haven't thought about it until now.

    Hello To You All. I Am Located Just South Of South Bend(lakeville) When I First Decided To Go Into Business For Myself, I Went To A Local Attorney And Believe Me It Was Money Well Spent. He Helped Get All The Necessary Paperwork And Documents Taken Care Of.

    BullDog, I know what you mean. I substitute teach and usually pull out a little bit before the semester ends. here in Indy that's would be around the end of May. I'm stirring up my contacts and clients from last year and working on flyers. I plan to up sell them on mulch and pre-season clean up.
