IRS links to state requirements for small businesses - find out if you need a business license, seller's permit or any other licensing in your area.
Also go to your city hall to find out about getting a DBA (Doing Business As) or business license if applicable. If you are not using your own name, you will generally need a DBA, and you may or may not need a business license, depending on your area. Always check. It doesn't cost much in most areas to get a business license, but penalties for not having one can be harsh, even $100s per DAY.
Think you need a designer to get a great website? Think again? Get hosting that will take care of all your home business needs and help you build a website that will attract targeted traffic.
