You may only need to get an Assumed Name Certificate if you're a sole proprietor - if you're a partnership or LC or LLC or Corp you may need the secretary of state to sign off on a resolution. For that you will need a lawyer and probably $600. Sole Props can usually use their SSN as their tax ID. Anything other than that the IRS will need to give you a TIN.
