What licenses or permits do I need?

Did you know most cities and states require a business license and a seller’s permit? Some even require a health permit or an exemption.


Check with the business office at your city hall. They will also tell you where to get your seller’s permit. Wholesalers and distributors will ask for your seller’s permit or resale number when you buy products. This enables them to sell to you without charging you tax. Then, at the end of the year you’ll turn over the taxes you collect from your customers to your state.

Consult your state’s website to get the details on what is required to do business in your state.
