New Hampshire Distinguishability of Names

Effective January 1, 2019, the business entity laws in New Jersey have been revised by adding criteria for determining distinguishability of names.  The added provisions describe elements that do not constitute distinguishing factors such as plural forms of the same word, phonetic spelling of the same word and abbreviations in place of complete spelling of names, among other factors.

Customers may need to consider the additional factors relating to distinguishability of names when attempting to place a (new) name on the Secretary of State’s record.

Incorporation/Formation/Qualification/Registration/Amendment and any other filings involving registration of a (new) entity name on the Secretary of State’s records will be impacted.

Delay in 4506T Processing

Due to the government shutdown, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) will be CLOSED which will cause a delay in any 4506T orders.  Please note that we will be able to place new orders and view the status of existing and completed orders, however, orders will not be processed until the government reopens.  In the meantime, please continue to submit your orders as we will process and queue all our customers’ orders so we are prepared to transmit to the IRS when they reopen to minimize any additional delays.
