Starting a(n) Business Licenses & Tax IDs
 
     

You can choose to be a(n) Crawfish :

  • Sole Proprietor,
  • LLC,
  • Corporation or
  • Partnership.
    After you decide and select your business entity, you need licensing.



Pasadena Business Tax Registration ( Business License)
All businesses including home, online or mobile BUSINESS need a BUSINESS license because they are BUSINESSES.



A(n) Crawfish business doing business under an assumed business name in Harris County i.e. you are a business that uses a DBA doing business as trade name to trade that is other than the full legal (first and last -- full name) name of a sole proprietor or a name other than the LLC or Corporation business name need a(n) assumed business name certificate. ย  E.g. you venture into a(n) Crawfish business and you give it a trade name such as "Excellence Crawfish & Associates". You will need to register an assumed business name certificate.

In TX you need a resale ID ( AKA seller's permit) if you selling touchable items. ย (A.K.A state id, wholesale, resale, reseller certificate, about $39 for most states).
Seller's Permit



Note: All businesses need a federal tax ID number except sole proprietors that are not employers and are not independent contractors.
An independent contractor is a self employed business person that receives more than $600 per year from anyone of his or her clients.
IRS rule: The client must issue a 1099 form to the independent contractor and the independent contractor must have a federal tax ID. However, even sole owners may obtain a federal ID and use it as a business tax ID instead of using their own social security number as a business tax ID number.
However, all other licenses that apply to sole proprietors as discussed here are requited regardless of getting a federal tax ID number.


In addition you will need a federal and a state EIN if you will hire employees. I.e., a TX Federal Tax Id Number ($29) ย and a(n) TX ย State Employer Tax Numberย ย 


Instead of filing a fictitious business name DBA Filing (about $49 plus state and legal newspaper publication fees) in Pasadena,ย Incorporate in TX ย orย form a(n) TX LLC
.ย 

Filing a DBA is not required if you will set up an LLC or form a Corporation. If you will do business under your first and last legal name you will not need to get a fictitious business name.
Also note that even using your first and last name may not help you avoid filing a DBA if the name has a suffix such as "& sons" etc.



If you do form an Other llc or incorporate (about $49 plus state fees for most states) your Crawfish business instead of just filing a fictitious business name (dba), that insurs that you don't have personal liability for debts and civile liabililty arising from your business dealings and you will not have to record the Pasadena business name. In lieu of recording a Harris County trade company name (our filing service fee includes trade name registration and newspaper legal publication for 4 weeks) you can also form a corporation in TX or form an TX LLC (starts @ $49 plus state fee for most states & includes bylaws for the corporation and Limited Liability operating agreement for the LLC that is required to open a business bank account). .
