Q : I am starting an online Catholic books and gifts store. I would also sell outside of the online. I have no physical store, though. would I need to get an LLC and would I also need a tax number for sales and wholesale purchase? Would I need to apply for any other licenses or tax ID's. It is only me the owner in business - very small business. Will be web-hosted by yahoo. Thanks.
