Registering for a sole proprietorship, differs somewhat by from state to state. In our particular instance, being located in Tennessee you don't actually register your sole proprietorship. You can reserve the name, but you cannot permanently reserve the name. The way it works here is you go online, you research to see if your name well when you select your name, you go online you research to see if that name is available. If it is you can pay a fee, and reserve that name for a three month period. And then at the end of that three months you have to go in, and reserve it again. You can't actually reserve it permanently unless you go that different form of corporate structure, which you know an LLC or a incorporation or whatever. Depending on your state once you get your name reserved, and get it set up then you need to check there are various federal filings things you have to do. There are various state filing things you have to do, and licenses you have to apply for, and there are also local licenses if you are in a state or a city, I'm sorry a county or a city you may have to register, and pay some kind of of a license fee to get it organized and set up properly.
