Are you operating as an LLC, Corporation, or Sole Proprietorship? 

  • If you are planning to operate your business as a Corporation or an LLC, you will need to have a copy of the Articles of Incorporation and the Federal ID to show the city.
  • If you are going to operate as a Sole Proprietorship, you will need to have registered a Fictitious Name.

Step Three:  You will then need to go to the county where your business is located and obtain a business license from the county as well.

  • If your business is not located in a city, you will just go directly to your County Hall to obtain the business license.
