Assumed Names (DBA) are valid for a period not to exceed 10 years and are normally registered within the same county in which your business is located. However, you can register your business in as many counties as you would like.
The County Clerk's Office has no requirement on the number of signatures on the certificate. But recommends that you ask your bank and/or CPA to determine how to file your assumed name.
A State Tax ID Number is obtained thru the State Comptroller’s Office. Phone: 800-252-5555
Abandonment of Assumed Name requires any signatures from the original Assumed Name.
The County Clerk's Office will not research the availability of a business name and does not verify that a duplicate filing has occurred. Computers are available in our office to search our Assumed Name records.
If a corporation and an unincorporated company have very similar names and there is a problem, neither automatically has the right to the name. If both parties have properly filed the Assumed Name Certificate the courts will most likely have to decide this matter. Therefore, it is important to do a thorough search when considering a business name.
If you have further questions please contact our office at 409-267-2418.

How do I transfer property from one owner to another?
Answer: Generally, you should contact an attorney or a title company to prepare the type of document needed. Some forms are available in form books at the library or at an office supply store. After the document is prepared, if it is a recordable document (which means it meets the recording standards and is properly signed and notarized) you may bring or mail the document to the County Clerk’s Office to be recorded in Official Public Records. There is a fee to record your document. See “Fees.”
