Name Changes

If you change your name, you must provide a copy of the appropriate court document or marriage license and e-mail/fax it to the Board. E-mail the document(s) to, or fax them to 410-962-8483.

Business Entities
Firms must apply for a NEW permit through the normal process if the firm has become a new entity with new directors, officers and federal ID number.

If the directors, officers and federal ID number have not changed, the name can be changed by submitting the following documentation:

  1. A written statement signed by the President, that the directors, officers and federal ID number have not changed.
  2. Evidence of the business' Good Standing status with the Maryland Department of Assessments and Taxation (SDAT). Evidence may be provided by printing a results screen from SDAT's Charter Record Search database. Once the business entity is located through the search, click on the "General Info" link. Print that window, and send it to the Board. There is no fee due to SDAT for printing the window.

Failure to notify the Board of address changes in a timely manner can prevent license renewal notification. A $100 late fee will be charged when a license is not renewed by the expiration date.
