I'm having a hard time registering a Trade Name in Oklahoma.

I'm having a hard time registering a Trade Name in Oklahoma. The trade name we want to use is "Muskogee Tree" but apparently the state of Oklahoma considers it a conflict with the name "Trees Inc" because the state is ignoring the geographical location at the beginning of our DBA name. My question is - if I registered "Muskogee Tree Trimming and Removals" as the official DBA name, put that on our trucks and shirts, but also used "Muskogee Tree" for short on some items, or in conversation with customers - or perhaps had the customers make checks out to "Muskogee Tree" (so long as my bank would accept them) would I be breaking any laws or on shaky legal ground with the state?

This question deals specifically with California Law and I prefer fo have a California attorney answer this question. Thank you.I am leasing a building to a tenant that is a California Corporation (Corp1, started 2014). For this question I will call this corporation ABC MNO XYZ, Inc.Turns out, this tenant has another California Corporation (Corp 2, started 2012) has a different name completely.Corp 2 registered a DBA with the county recorder in 2012. Published this DBA. The DBA is "ABC MNO XYZ." Same as/identical to Corp 1 except for the "Inc.".After the lease was signed by ABC MNO XYZ, Inc. (Corp 1), we discovered that he has been signing building permits, business records, city filings, etc. as "ABC MNO XYZ" ...No "Inc."Further, with some research, we discover in the California Business Corp name search that Corp 2 is suspended.Also, his our tenant the president of Corp 1 was/is also the President of Corp 2Could someone help me understand what "shell/sham" game is being played? This fellows father is a real-estate lawyer.Can someone point me to some California codes/laws to help me learn about this? Something doesn't sit right.Thanks

I have a business in Instructional Media Development that

Hi,I have a business in Instructional Media Development that plugs along (LLC in Arizona, Sole Proprietor) and tax write-offs are against my wife's income combined with mine from the business). File# ***** if you'd like to see it, "Business Type: " is blank. However, I'm also an inventor and I'm pushing for license agreements on my inventions (multiple and in different areas). This is clearly a new scope of business, but I'd rather not start a new business. (Maybe just revise the name - I have done that once already). So how would our joint married taxes work this year? Can I lump it all together or do I need to spell separate schedules for difference expenses and income - on the same LLC?Thanks,John
