Fictitious Firm Name Certificates 

On February 13, 2019, the White Pine County Board of Commissioners passed Ordinance 498 repealing all of Chapter 4.01 of the White Pine County Code other than those provisions regulating marijuana establishments and reorganizing the remaining provisions under Chapter 10.62 of the White Pine County Code.  The effect this has is that White Pine County NO LONGER HAS A BUSINESS LICENSE REQUIREMENT, except for marijuana establishments, as of March 4, 2019. 

On April 11, 2018, The Board of Commissioners passed Ordinance 489 which placed an expiration date on all fictitious firm name forms (DBA's) on file in the White Pine County Clerk's Office of five (5) years after the initial application date. The White Pine County Clerk attempted to notify all people on file, but if you failed to update your business information after any changes, it is possible you did not receive this notice. Please see Ordinance 489 regarding this change.

On June 9, 2021, the Board of Commissioners passed Ordinances 518 & 519 allowing the Clerk's Office to check identification and approve a Fictitious Firm Name Certificate instead of requiring notarization for those that are executed in the White Pine County Clerk's Office. Those arriving in the mail will still require notarization. Payment for the filing of these certificates is $25.   A link to a Fictitious Firm Name Form is below.
