How to register to do business

How do I register to do business? Where do I go? Can I do it myself? How much does it cost? These are many questions you are probably asking yourself. The answer is - it depends on the state where you live. (This refers to the United States only). There are many state and local regulations that have to do with doing business in a state. The easiest way to start is to go to your state's secretary of state website and then find a link that has to do with starting a business. If you don't find such a link then e-mail your secretary of state's office and ask them. Some of the common requirements that you will find will have to do with registering assumed names and registering for sales tax. Here is a link to a list of all secretary of state offices.
