Kownick claimed 4 years ago to have filed his business registration with the State of Illinois
Mark Kownick never filed with the State as he claimed!
The real question is "Why wouldn't he really do this as he vehemently claimed he did?"
What is he hiding? What is he avoiding? His lies are so convincing it's scary to witness!
The process for registering a business name with the State of Illinois is an easy process that almost anyone can do on their own, however if you feel more comfortable using an attorney there are on-line services like legalzoom .com that will help in the range of $150.00 + state filing fees.
