I will have my authorization for a retail residential kitchen soon and I was wondering if I needed a tax number, a legal denomination (LLC, sole proprietor…) and a specific type of insurance? Thanks a lot for you help!May 17, 2014 at 1:26 am #5759 David CrabillKeymasterYou probably need a business license (you don’t need to be incorporated)… not sure if you need a tax number. Here’s some info on insurance: http://forrager.com/faq/#insuranceIt all depends on where you live. I’d recommend that as a first step, you call your county’s planning division.February 7, 2020 at 3:59 am #51990 Mike LewisParticipantHi! (fellow masshole) Just curious whether you got the authorization from your town or from the state? Thanks, MikeAuthor PostsViewing 3 posts - 1 through 3 (of 3 total)You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
