    Jacobs' if you're talking about something owned by several Jacobs. Jacobs's if you're talking about something owned by the proper name 'Jacobs'. That's the way I always preferred, but it's sort of up in the air depending on the company.

    If you're talking about a noun ending in S or a plural noun,either is correct but the first is more common. Example: Brandon Jacobs' (or Jacobs's) car.

    If you're talking about a singular noun, it would be 's. Example: Jacob's car.

    If "Jacob" owns a car, it would be "Jacob's car". If you are talking about a last name that may be "Jacobs" then it would be "Jacobs' car." Jacobs's in incorrect. I hope this helps!
