Thanks so much for responding to my post. I'm located in Tennessee, so I was trying to do some research online about how to register for the business. I found this page: http://www.tennesseeanytime.org/bizreg/index.html
that seemed to offer info about business registration, but I'm not sure what classification I'm under... Would I be Franchise and Excise Taxes or Sales and Use Tax??
Do you know? Or is this something I don't need to know about for this?
I also found this info:
Sole Proprietorships. In general, sole proprietorships in Tennessee can be formed with no formalities. However, as discussed in Section IV(b) below, it will generally be necessary to obtain one or more local business licenses from cities or counties in which you operate and, in some cases, state licenses, as well.
No separate state income tax filing is required, generally, for a sole proprietorship operating in Tennessee, since there is no general state income tax in the state, only the Hall Income Tax, a tax on dividends and interest income of individuals.
