    Hi all!

    Do any of you have experience in getting a business license for your affiliate marketing?

    In order to do a couple things I'd like to do, I need a business license. I'd also like a business account for tax reasons.

    From what I can find out online, I would need an home occupational license. However, I don't know exactly how to go about getting one and what the qualifications are. All I see is to get one from your city and state.

    Also, we would like to use a generic name without "lesbians" in it. We could get a DBA, but that's not the same as having a business license with a tax number, is it?

    We live in Florida. We would appreciate any tips or guidance that you can give in this area. Thanks!

    Get one and use one now before you even start making money.

    What you need really depends on where you live. I set up an LLC and then once I did that I got a Tax ID from the IRS. I might also suggest cough, cough seeing an attorney in your area and talking about which type of business organization is right for you. Better yet if you can find a JD/CPA combo.

    oops... sorry, I thought I had posted about getting a business license before... but I didn't see it until I posted the other thread about what category to use.

    Thank you, Heyder and Malibber, for your great advice. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]
