Could you fill me in on the basics of what I need to do this properly and legally? What permits do I need (where do I get them?) and what insurance do I need (and who provides it)? Do I need to get a seperate Tax ID or anything like that?
Thanks and blessings,
being legal is a pain in the rear. do you really think the irs is going to audit a minister making 25,000 i don't think so!!
as far as a license, who is ever going to check you??? that's right NO ONE!!
the insurance might be a good idea, but a guy can go "insurance broke" i'd skip it if i were you.
take some of your money and put it towards the common good and be content with yourself. cherish every moment
