Business Liscense

I am from Ohio, and I need info on business liscenses. Who do you contact? Is it required? I have been in business for 15 years here and heard that you should have one. I have Fed ID # and Workers Comp, and accountant has never said anything. Most LCO's in our area don't have them. I want to get one to be on the safe side, but who do you contact? Any info would be great.

Contact your city/municipality or county office, and they will be able to get you one.

Go to www.state.oh.us and you can find the info. You will need a service vendors license. Then you get to collect sales tax and pay it to the great state of Ohio just like the rest of us. It will be such great fun!

Be careful here.

Although not required, I registered with my town and I now receive a yearly property tax bill on my equipment.

On your equipment? I received one about the property itself and also, I believe product inventory. None of this applies.

Yes, municipal property tax on equipment used in the business.
ALL of my equipment, including the computer I'm on now and the chair I'm sitting in.

It's a depreciation schedule, but since most of my equipment is new, I'll be taxed at 95% valuation for last year.

Accountant said give them only the basics...Trailer, mower, blower, trimmer.
That will keep them happy.
They'd have to do a physical audit to find the rest.

Everybody wants their piece of the pie.
