    Contact your state department of revenue and ask them to send you a business registration tax kit, it should have everything you need. You may need to contact your department of Agraculture and take the test to get a commercial aplicators license for chemicals. You can also do an internet search for FEIN irs.gov

    A good accountant can help with the FEIN, and state board of labor for your contracting license.

    No you don't need no accountant :laugh: you just log onto irs.gov and you just apply for the number...if I remember they give you the number immediately and later on you get the official stuff in the mail.
