Meeting your requirements

In most states, businesses (whether a sole proprietorship or an incorporated business type) need licenses and/or permits to operate and comply with government mandates for safety, soundness and tax. There are many federal, state, local and even regional requirements that may apply to your business.

Why it’s important

Failure to comply with license and permit requirements can lead to pricey penalties or leave business owners with no legal protection. These requirements vary by industry and also depend on how business is transacted and where the business is located. Be sure to research state and local licensing requirements for your business type and location—or let BizFilings do that work for you when you purchase our Business License Application Package. Please note, the Business License Application Package does not incorporate your business. If you'd like to incorporate, choose your desired business type from our Incorporation Options page.

Understanding Business Licenses

Keep in Mind

The most common item businesses need for tax registration is a Federal Tax Identification Number (FEIN), also called the Employer Identification Number or EIN. The EIN is issued by the IRS and is basically a social security number for a business.
