Legal Newspaper List

After filing with this office, you must publish Certificate of Assumed Name or Amendment to Certificate of Assumed Name with a qualified Legal Newspaper for two consecutive issues in the county where the principal place of business is located. After publication, the newspaper will return an affidavit of publication which should be retained by the business.

See Minnesota Statutes, Chapter 333 for Assumed Name filing information

*Newspapers must satisfy several requirements to be a legal newspaper, including that they register with the Minnesota Secretary of State and pay a $25 application fee. The fact that a newspaper is included on the Minnesota Secretary of State’s legal newspaper list does not prove the newspaper has satisfied all criteria necessary to be a legal newspaper. You are responsible for ensuring any newspaper that you use is qualified to be a legal newspaper under Minnesota law.
