How do you file a Business Certificate?

A Business Certificate can be filed at the Town Clerk's office Monday through Friday, 9 am to 4 pm. Please be prepared to provide a photo I.D.

If you are unable to make it during the Town Clerk's business hours, you may print out your own Business Certificate form (PDF), but it must be completed and signed in the presence of a Notary Public. 

If more than one person is conducting business under said name, all persons should be listed on the business certificate. All proprietors are not required to appear together at the same time but all signatures must be notarized or signed in front of the Town Clerk. The business certificate will take effect once completed by all owners and filed with the Town Clerk.
