I talked to a lady at the Probate Office about license for a new business. She said since I am operating as a sole prop. that all I need is a FEIN. So I asked what would happen if the business name I wanted was already used. She said it doesn't matter as a sole prop. Is this so? I want to get everything ready, advertising, truck signs, etc. and I would hate, HATE for the same lady to tell me something different when I go to get my license. I can already hear her, "I'm sorry sir, but that name's already being used, you need to choose something else". ERRRRRRRRRRRR!!! That would not be good.
