I run my business from my home. Do I need a license?Most likely. Even home-based and online-only businesses often need at least one license to operate. For example, you may need a state tax identification number, a sales tax identification number, or a local permit to operate a business from your home.
What happens if I don’t have the right business licenses?Not having all your required licenses can be a costly risk. You may not be able to open your business or add a new service or product line. You could get hit with expensive penalties, interest, liens, or worse—you might even be forced to shut down.
