Operating a Child Care Facility Using a “Doing Business As” Name

Operating a child care facility – whether family home or center - is a business and like all other businesses, any individual or group who does not want to use their legal name but wishes to operate a business using a different name must register that name with the Maryland State Department of Assessments and Taxation. This unique name is commonly known as the DBA – “Doing Business As” name and it is a legal requirement in Maryland when conducting business in any other name instead of your legal name.
