5. Restrictions on DBA Names

A DBA for a sole proprietorship or general partnership may not contain any word or corporate ending implying it is anything other than a DBA. For example, if Joe Smith operates a sole proprietorship under "ABC Plumbing," he cannot file a DBA as "ABC Plumbing, Inc." Using a corporation or LLC ending requires forming such an organization with the appropriate state agency.
