Each person who regularly conducts business or renders professional services other than as a corporation, limited partnership, registered limited partnership, or limited liability company in the county must file its assumed name certificate (also known as "d.b.a." or "doing business as") with the clerk so that a record is available as to the owner's businesses. Assumed name certificates are good for 10 years from the date of filing the certificate, or a shorter period of time if stated within the certificate. The clerk has no duty to notify a party of the expiration of a certificate. Withdrawals of a partner or abandonment of assumed names are recorded in the same manner.
