Question about starting a business...

I'm looking for more information on starting a home based business. I'm not sure if I need to get license, etc. and where to start. I see lots of moms here have their own businesses making diapers, bags, longies, etc. I have an idea what to make and sell them also to donate them for kids with cancer. How do I go about starting it up? Thanks!

Re: Question about starting a business...

Talk to your local zoning office. You may be able to find what you need online, or a phone call to zoning is helpful if you need a human connection. For my home based business I needed a home occupation permit (mine was $75 for lifetime of me working from this residence) and needed a business license. The business license was free. Because I do not exceed a certain amount of income, I do not have to pay local tax on my earnings, just state and federal. I also got a EIN so I didn't have to use my SS# The IRS issues them online for free. Many people do NOT get license or home occupation permit. Personally, I know several and they've never run into trouble. I'm a rule follower though, and wouldn't want to deal with the fallout of not taking care of things. It's really a simple process.

Best of luck.
