Apply for an Assumed Name Certificate
To apply for an assumed name certificate the business owner must fill out a form. This form can be obtained from our office in person or by mail. The fee for filing for this certificate is $5.00. After it is filed in our office it must be published for three consecutive weeks in the newspaper of your choice in Clinton County. Publication cost will be your responsibility. After we receive the certificate of publication from the paper, we in turn will send you an Assumed Name Certificate.
