MYSELF ONLY AT THIS POINT
The way you would want to do what you plan is by incorporating as a professional corporation and then doing a fictitious name under which you would conduct business. I would be the same name without the PC or PL designation. statute 621.12(4).

WELL, I HAD CORPORATION ALREADY THAT I AM DISSOLVING SO THIS A NEW CORPORATION, BUT MY CURRENT CORP IS AN INC AND S CORP, BUT I AM READING ON MY NEW APP FOR CORP AND IT SAYS IF I AM A DOCTOR I SHOULD FORM P.C. BUT I ACTED AS S CORP FOR YEARS, I AM MAINLY WONDERING IF I FORM S CORP, WHY NOT, SINCE I DO BUSINESS PROFESSIONAL SERVICES AND OTHER SERVICES AS WELL??
MAINLY, CAN I FORM INC WITH S REGARDLESS?
No you cannot form a new corp without the PC designation if you provide professional services. If you had a corporation prior to the adoption of the act you can keep it but you cannot form a new one. The way I gave you is how you would get the result you want.
