  • When filing for an EIN, how did you categorize the business? Food service, manufacturing, other?? Thanks!

  • haha I appreciate the support ;)
    I did actually create an LLC to remove personal liability, but if I find after a year that I don’t need it, I’ll switch to save money.
    Next steps are getting FBN validated, then getting a federal EIN, business license, state EIN and then a seller’s permit… I think that covers everything, for now haha

    Thank you again

  • Yes, great call on the sellers permit. I kind of assumed I’d need that anyway. I looked into it and it appears you need both a federal EIN and state EIN first, and the state EIN requires a business license with the city to obtain one. So many legalities! haha Thanks again

  • This explanation is very helpful- thank you! Agreed that it’s best to check with the state/county as California always seems to be an outlier haha.
    Again, I appreciate the detail you’ve provided. I’m making a bar, which I guess one could consider a “biscuit” (hopefully) and therefore not taxable. Thanks again!

  • Marlyn,
    Thank you so much for your thorough reply- your explanation provides clarity and makes total sense. I will be applying for my Cottage B license, but even so, the same logic still applies. I will go ahead and get a seller’s permit anyway, as I believe my county requires it as well. Thank you again and take care.

I’m seeking to understand whether we are selling direct to consumer (fulfilling online orders, doing delivery and pickup) and events like farmer’s markets, if we have to include sales tax in our pricing. If so, how do we…[Read more]
