You can try Googling it - most states have an online form on their website these days. Alternatively, just visit your local County Clerk's office. It's usually free to apply, but some states may charge a small processing fee.

For example, there may be quota restrictions for importing textiles whose value is more than $250. Formal Customs entries must be filed for all made-to-order suits from Hong Kong, no matter what the value, unless they accompany the traveler. Before sending textiles, whether whole cloth or apparel, to the United States from abroad, you should contact your local Customs port Link hidden: Login to view or the Customs attachÃ© in an American embassy abroad about whether your textile package will be subject to import restrictions. (This is particularly true if the textiles are intended for sale as opposed to for your personal use or as a gift.)
Resale license, EIN:
I read somewhere that you only need a reseller license and EIN if you own a business with an actual location, is this correct? So if I want to start my business first on ebay does this mean I wouldn't need to apply for a reseller license or EIN until I want to expand my business (create a website, rent out an office, etc)? Another reason I may need it is if the wholesaler ask for a EIN or resale license.
