Register Your Business
- Registering your business name with your state
- Registering your business as a legal entity, like an LLC or S Corp, must be done by filing articles of the corporation with your state government.
- Registering your business with IRS and state revenue office requires you to apply for an Employer Identification Number (EIN) for tax purposes. If you plan to collect sales tax from your customers (food or retail), you may need to apply for a sales tax permit from your state’s revenue office.
- Licenses and permits may be required to sell your products or operate your services, even if you operate out of your home or online.
Be sure to find out exactly what you need to register your small business for because failure to do so could result in serious and costly consequences.
