Get Your Doing Business Name (DBA)

Overview:
A DBA name is an official business name.

A good example is if Jane Smith wanted to start "Jane's Tax Services." She would need to file for a DBA. Then, she could operate under the business name instead of her own name, establishing a level of separation.

Filing a DBA also means a bank account can be created under the business name (requirements vary).
