Organization Legal Name for a Sole Proprietorship

New Community Member
Posted on

Hi - I'm trying to set up a business account for a sole proprietorship. One of the questions in the U.S. is for "Organization Legal Name," where the tooltip says I need to use the name from my articles of incorporation.

If I am doing a sole proprietorship, and I set up a DBA to operate under another name, which should I put down as my Organization Legal Name?

1. My own name

2. The name specified on the DBA that I've filed?


It seems like it would be better to use the DBA name, but I'm not sure if that's ok.
