Registering a DBA in Texas
DBA in Texas is called "assumed name". Texas has two different procedures for filing assumed names, depending on the type of company filing it:
DBA filed by an individual (sole proprietorship) or general partnership (as well as some trusts and estates) is registered by filing an assumed name certificate with the county clerk in the county (or counties) in which the business is based or conducts business in. The fee to file an assumed name certificate varies depending on the county, and application must be notarized prior to filing.
DBA filed by an organized entity (such as LLC or corporation) is registered by filing an assumed name certificate with Texas Secretary of State, AND by filing a county assumed name certificate (different form) with the county clerk, in the same fashion as described above under (1). This application filed with the Secretary of State does not need to be notarized prior to filing, however applications submitted to county clerk(s) must be notarized.
We can help you research the assumed name of your choice, and prepare and file all the necessary registration paperwork with the Texas Secretary of State and/or county clerk(s) of your choice, depending on the entity type - all you need to do is complete our simple application below.
