Question by craftwave: When starting an online business is there any permits etc. that need to be gotten?
I’m thinking of starting an online business. I know how to do a website and get the url name. What I really need to know is about taxes, permits and things like that. Can anyone help me or point me in the right direction?

you don’t have to charge taxes for online purchases, however you might want to register yourself as a business in your city/state/county. it’s not too expensive, but it gives you a tax id number for filing purposes. but if all you’re going to do is online–exclusively–i wouldn’t be in a big rush to register, honestly. but remember, that if you don’t, you also can’t get reimbursed for any expenses that you have, and if it’s the only job you’re going to have, you might want to be able to prove that at some point.
