I am in the process of opening a business and I have a question about the naming of it. The name I chose is Bayou City Daiquiris and I thought I did my necessary research on it before I purchased a DBA as sole proprietorship. After conducting a few more searches on the business, I know see that a LLC was formed on 3/16/2016 as Bayou City Daiquiris LLC, but they did not trademark the name or get a DBA for it. They have actually done nothing else with establishing the business. I wanted to know if I trademark the name will I still be in harms way in the future if they decided they want to use that name for a future business? Can I form an LLC under a different name and just list that DBA as a business under it. I really need to know what to do before I go to and apply for a liquor license this week. I need to know if a trademark will have more authority than a business name that has LLC in the title.

This relates to tax law. This is your challenge. At County

This relates to tax law. This is your challenge.At Butler County airport, Ohio hangars are owned by individuals/business/associations and land is on long term lease. Rental (or lease) payments are made, but lease states "...meet all expenses in connection with the use of the premises and rights and privileges herein granted, including but not limited to real estate and personal property taxes....."There are two "property taxes", one for the actual building and other for the Land. No question on the building, but land property tax is usually responsibility of the landlord. In my case, the lease is 17 yrs old.Is it true that a the person who pays the land property tax can take squatters rights to the property after 7 years?To further the question, last yr my brother complains to the County tax department about the land property tax and they agree to remove it. The County then removed it for all leases at the airport. Also, the tax department person pointed out the land where buildings are is in a "property tax exempt" area from the state. So, can we ask for all "land" property tax back from day one of May 1999?

I am behind my rear child support. I am trying to get a real estate license in order to be able to generate more income. I realized very recently that the real estate commissioner would not issue a license to a person that has issue with child support. If I had enough income, I would be making some sort of installment arrangement. Is there anything I could do, in order to get my real estate license and work in California.

Good Morning.My name is***** have a 501.c.3 non profit in Florida. We are ambitious to make big growth the next few years, and I am trying to do some due diligence. We receive many donations for cars and boats throughout the year. We see other non profits who do this as a fundraising effort, receiving donations and reselling them to fund their organization. Our understanding is that in Florida, entities who sell 3 or more vehicles are required to have a dealers license. This is almost impossible to obtain in Monroe County Florida. The state requirements are that a dealer must have a commercial car lot, and they are all used up in our County. What options do we have as a non profit to be able to legally sell vehicles donated to us in Florida living in a county where we are unable to obtain a dealers license?

Law Educator, Esq. Only.(This is the Regular with second appeal)Few days ago I told you about the Superior Court giving order of "No action Necessary" that there is 'NO STAY IN PLACE" on a motion to terminate stay filed by the plaintiff. I also said that this order was given after my motion to strike the foreclosure was order off pending the final decision on appeal.You told me that since that order came after the foreclosure motion to strike was ordered off, it means the stay is off that the Court is saying I lost that the plaintiff should execute the judgment, also that it was the end for me in this case. You then asked me to file a motion for stay to the Appellate Court to appeal the Superior Court decision.I just checked the dates of the orders and found out that the "no stay in place" Order was given days before the motion to strike the foreclosure order was given. The other Judge in the foreclosure case after hearing my argument told me she knew of section 61-11 that stipulates that there is automatic stay on any case that is pending on appeal. So, she decided to go against the other Judge"s Order and states that because of the "Post Judgement award of attorney fees which is still pending on appeal, this action is stayed, pursuant to practice book section 61-11, until the appeal is finally decided or the stay is terminated by order of the Appellate Court".Before, one had to file a motion for stay and it has to be approved for there to be a stay of execution on the judgment on appeal, but it was Changed and there is now an automatic stay of execution on any judgment on appeal until the appeal is decided or a motion to terminate stay is granted.This new information changed the whole panic attack your answer almost gave me two days ago. It is the Stay of the action that is correct, the foreclosure Judge knew the other Judge was wrong and decided to disregard that Judgment.my question now, Do I have to worry myself and file a motion for stay to the appellate Court to appeal the superior Court decision that states that there is no stay in place?.

A startup wants to hire me but can only pay in equity. It is my understanding that there are tax implications for being paid sweat equity. What is the best way to limit my tax liability?I originally thought they could just pay with a convertible note that I can convert into shares once the company raises money, but it is my understanding that I would pay taxes on the value of the note even though I never received a cash payment.

He still manages our digital assets as a service provider. The judgement case was in indiana but our operations is in florida and llc in delaware. They will requested the court to take our assets to settle judgement. Can we move to file a counter in Florida or Delaware after the Indiana court requests said assets, which some we dont own or control ?
