Why is filing a business license necessary?

Simply put, the business license is required because the local governments say that it must be done. In general it is a way that these businesses will track those businesses operating in their local area, and also local governments want to ensure that they are collecting as much local tax as they can. And a business license is a way of generating revenue for your local government.

How do I file a local business license?

Filing the local business license is most often a form that must be submitted to what is called the local business office. The form will typically ask for:
