Can I Register a DBA for a sole proprietorship at the state level so I don't have to keep changing my business street address?

1 Answers. Asked on Aug 08th, 2017 on Business Law - New York
More details to this question:
I am involved in an extended project to dispense with some salable digital assets and I registered in Kings county NY (Brooklyn) under a DBA. I didn't want to use my home address so I found a UPS type store nearby and obtained a street address for the sole proprietorship. Now I moved upstate and no longer am in Kings County. Is there a way I can register at the state level as a sole proprietorship to avoid having to get a new DBA in Orange County and a new business address? Does my business street address have to be in the same county where I live, or where I obtained my business certificate or could the address it remain in Brooklyn? All of the business activity is online. I would consider starting a class S Corp but as I will never have employees and would like to keep things simple a Corp seems a bit overboard and would seem to have a lot of overhead. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Just change the address for the business and address for process service with the secretary of state. It is around $100.
