Doing Business As (DBA) document will prevent your business name from being duplicated in your state, and validate you as owner of your business name.

You may also be able to complete it online depending on where you live!
Total Time------15 Minutes-1 1/2 Hour

Your Tax ID Number is a number similar to your Social Security Number and will be used for your taxes since you will be self-employed!
Another word for Tax ID Number is Employer Identification Number-EIN
Complete step 5, Get your DBA from your County Clerks office or state government.
Get your EIN NUMBER or call 1-800-829-4933
