I'm trying to figure out what forms and applications I need, and I was thinking about using businesslicenses.com to help me out since I am not sure of how many forms I need. Does anyone have an opinion on going this route? Thanks.

If this is a pay site. Your better of just going to irs.gov and doing it all yourself. They have an online application form that is user friendly and you can sign up within a half hour and its FREE.

Jimmy is right. On most of these pay sites, you pay a fee and usually you then get a url link which in turn takes you to your state and/or irs site to fill out the form. So why pay for a link when you can just go to the state and federal site and start there. My forms were very simple and took only a couple of minutes..

Too, if you think that you are not sure about what you need and want, just take a trip down to your local federal building (courthouse) both state and irs will usually have a branch office there. The staff there will be happy to help you. If your city is small and does not have a branch office, just call the city or county clerks office and they can give you the location of the nearest office if you decide not to do it online.

Another good source of help will be your local Small Business Administration. They can tell you what you need and will be happy to point you in the right direction. They are also a good source of resources for starting out...

It depends on what forms you need. For example, if you want to start an LLC or other business entity you might find an online site very useful (I personally use one that's very good - not sure if I can post it here without getting into trouble).

You should get a sales tax certificate from your state. All legitimate wholesalers will need this in order to do business with you.

You can post any sites to help people out. We just stop people from advertising thier own sites here unless they are registered sellers. Its only a precaution to keep others from being scammed.

Do you guys mean I need licenses to sell stuff online? I find that hard to believe. I do pay my taxes but I've never had to file any special forms in between tax seasons.

^well, if i am understanding you correctly, it depends...if you are REselling for profit, it is illegal not to have a resellers license/registered retail merchant certificate. Although, if you are paying your taxes and filing the right forms, maybe you are ok....but maybe someone with more experience and knowledge should respond..
