Anyone who has ever started a small business knows there's always another piece of paperwork that needs to be filled out. Leases. Licenses. Supplier agreements. Receipts and contracts with customers and clients.
And that isn't even touching on costs: Federal taxes. State taxes. City taxes. Sales taxes. After a while, you may begin to feel like you're paying all of your profits off to the tax man.
But don't overlook one easy-to-miss requirement of starting a business: the paperwork and fee for your local business license.
