You cannot operate as a business withOUT registering with the State.
There is a lot of back and forth as to whether or not you can do business as yourself or whether you need to register. YOU REGISTER AS A SOLE PROPRIETOR DOING BUSINESS AS (DBA) YOURSELF. IF YOU HAVE ANY DOUBTS ABOUT THIS, PLEASE CONTACT AN ACCOUNTANT IN YOUR STATE.
Okay, now that that's set in digital stone...in this video we discuss Cody's question about doing business legally. I answer the unasked question about copyright legality (in layman's terms). We discuss deductions and reseller permits. I also show examples of my own deductions from last year's taxes.
