    Commercial Insurance will be nearly impossible to get at only 16 years old. You'll probably have to get your parents to get it.

    On taxes, all income over $600 must be reported

    2 people asked already?? i ony had 2 people ask in 3 years in hundreds and hundreds of calls

    You wont be able to get commercial insurance withouth a business entity dba or corporations etc etc.... and i dont think u can form any real business until u are 18 so get your parents involved

    Undoubtedly being age 16 was what prompted the 2 early calls for proof of insurance. The matter threw up a red flag when they learned of a person this age trying to establish a business relationship.
