Permits

Virtually every business needs some form of license or permit to operate legally. A lot depends on the nature of your business and your location.

Many permits are issued at the county and/or city level, so these will vary depending on where your business is located. Examples of these kinds of permits include zoning, signage and health permits.

Some permits are issued at the state level. Here are some links that might be helpful.
