DBA Renewal

Renewal of Fictitious Firm Names (DBA)

Please note:
  1. DBA filing process cannot be completed online.
  2. Original signature(s) required for all DBA forms.
  3. DBA forms must be notarized by a Notary Public or a Washoe County Deputy Clerk.

If you are conducting business under a “Fictitious” business name, and that business name was filed with the County Clerk more than five years ago, your Fictitious Firm Name Certificate needs to be renewed as it has expired.

Pursuant to NRS 602.035, The Washoe County Board of County Commissioners has provided, by ordinance, that a certificate of fictitious firm name filed with the Washoe County Clerk expires 5 years after it has been filed.

Having current information on file in the County Clerk’s Office provides all citizens of Washoe County access to accurate ownership information for all businesses whose ownership is not reflected in their business name.
