    Legal Structure

    Whether an online, home, store, concession stand or a mobile cart, you will need to first select among sole owner/proprietor, partnership, LLC or corporation, all of which also require a   General Business License   (not a specific license to your type of business) as well. If your trade name is a business name other than your full personal legal name, you will need to file a   DBA  . For instance, your name is John Doe, and you do business as Best Widgets By John, the name must be registered with a   DBA Biz Name   because it is not your full legal name. Also, note that whatever item that you sell or lease and it is an item that can be touched (i.e., tangible such as equipment, toys, merchandise, electronics, prepared food) requires a state sales tax ID (  Sellers Permit  ) to either buy or sell the items or products wholesale and or sell them retail. If you are hiring workers anytime soon, you will need a   Federal EIN   and a   State EIN   (employer identification number). Other instances that you will need a federal tax ID are: if you are a partnership, an independent contractor, and a corporation or an   LLC  . You can also obtain a federal tax ID as a sole proprietor and use it as a business tax ID in the place of a social security number. However, you will still need other registrations, such as licenses, an assumed business name DBA, and tax IDs as described above. Finally, even one person, sole owner/proprietors working from home or just online can form a LLC or incorporate, in which case, they will not need to file a DBA.
