    hi there , this is all new to me . I would like to start an online cookie company however not sure about CFO in upstate NY ? or if i need a tax id for selling online? According to the CFO map NY looks to be all green for GO as in its ok to cook from your own kitchen in state of NY without liscence or healthy dept. ..despite the county….is this correct? i can cook from my kitchen and just sell away or is there more involved? and what advice can you give about selling cookies/bars online…are the only issues i need to resolve is CFO? TAX? i am new to this and have read plenty on it but all seems so confusing…please help…thanks
