Doing Business Under Assumed Name Certificates

A sole proprietorship or general partnership that intends to use a name other than the owner’s personal name must file for a fictitious name through a process that is called Doing Business As. You are required to file in the county/counties in which you conduct business.

You can file in Washington County by submitting the completed certificate form and the $25.00 cash filing fee; no checks or credit cards.

  • In Person, with valid photo identification from owner/owners
  • By mail, forms must be notarized prior to mailing. We will accept cashier’s checks and money orders. Be sure to indicate where you would like the form returned after filing.
