Your county government may have its own regulations, but I think most municipalities simply follow the lead of the IRS, so whatever specs or restrictions the IRS places on the name you use, you can probably do the same thing on a local basis. Sorry, but this is completely backwards. The IRS puts no limit on the name you use to conduct your business. If you are a sole proprietor without payroll, the IRS doesn't care other than that you list the name on Schedule C. If you have payroll, you need a separate tax ID for the business and that has to be issued in your DBA name (or your personal name if that's what you use).On the other hand, the regulation of business registration is completely up to your state, and in some states, local government.Ira
