A: Hi DERWIN, in Houston to be a TRACTOR TRAILER requires licensing. TRACTOR TRAILER and miscellaneous items is taxable when is sold so it requires that you collect sales tax and that requires that you hold a seller's permit. In addition, because as a TRACTOR TRAILER , you are an independent contractor as opposed to an employee, you need an EIN because your clients need to report you as an independent contractor using your EIN as your business ID. If you decided to form an LLC, you will need an LLC certificate and an operating agreement, which both come with the flat LLC set up price on our site. If you take the quiz, you can get a $30 off your LLC filing price. When you form your LLC, your assumed trade name "ZYDECOREDD TRUCKING LLC," will also be registered with the LLC registration. Also, note, that all TRACTOR TRAILER businesses need a business license and since you are an LLC, you will also need an EIN. Furthermore, LLCs that are employers need a federal EIN and a State EIN.
TRACTOR TRAILER REQUIRED LLC LIMITED LIABILITY DOCUMENTS AND LICENSES
LLC Refers to the Legal Company Structure

The legal structure is selected during TRACTOR TRAILER business registration. If you choose to be an LLC, you do not need to file a Doing Business As (DBA) Certificate .  About 60% of new businesses select an LLC when choosing a corporate structure.  For example, if you are a sole owner, you can file a DBA and so select the sole proprietorship structure or select the LLC structure to be a corporate entity because LLCs afford corporate protections such as business and personal liability protections.  Thus, when starting a business whether an online, home, store, concession stand or a mobile cart, you will need to first select among sole owner/proprietor, partnership, LLC or corporation, all of which also require a   General Business License   (not a specific license to your type of business, necessarily but a requirement for LLC companies as well as for any business)  b) as well. If you decide to be a sole proprietorship instead of an LLC, and trade name is a business name other than your full personal legal name, you will need to file a   Doing Business As (DBA) Certificate . For instance, your name is John Doe, and you do business as Best TRACTOR TRAILER By John, the name must be registered with a   DBA Biz Name document called a DBA certificate because Best TRACTOR TRAILER By John, is not your full legal name. Also, note that whatever TRACTOR TRAILER item that you sell or lease and it is an item that can be touched (i.e., tangible such as equipment, toys, merchandise, electronics, prepared food) requires a state sales tax ID (  Sellers Permit  ) to either buy or sell the items or products wholesale and or sell them retail. If you or your LLC are hiring workers within the next 30 days, you will need a   Federal EIN   and a   State EIN   (employer identification number). Even though if you treat the LLC as a disregarded entity, you can use your social security to conduct business, it is not recommended.  Other instances that you will need a federal tax ID are: if you are a partnership, an independent contractor, and a corporation or an   LLC   treated as a corporation. You can also obtain a federal tax ID as a sole proprietor and use it as a business tax ID in the place of a social security number. However, all TRACTOR TRAILER businesses need at least 2-5 business registration so you will still need other registrations, such as licenses, an assumed business name DBA, and tax IDs as described above. Finally, even one person, sole owner/proprietors working from home or just online can form a LLC or incorporate, in which case, they will not need to file a DBA and they will be members of the LLC.
 



1. SELECT LLC, DBA, CORP

From sole propr., San Antonio LLC, TX partneship or TX Corp.: Each requires an entity certificate filing.



2. TAX IDs - PERMITS

All Sole Proprietorship   businesses/entities need a business license and an EIN.



3. San Antonio STATE SALES TAX ID.

Selling/Buying wholesale or retail requires a San Antonio   seller's permit.


You can choose to be a(n) :

  • Sole Proprietor,
  • LLC,
  • Corporation or
  • Partnership.
    After you decide and select your business entity, you need licensing.



Houston Business Tax Registration ( Business License)
All businesses including home, online or mobile BUSINESS need a BUSINESS license because they are BUSINESSES.



A(n) business doing business under an assumed business name in Fort Bend County i.e. you are a business with a trade name other than the owner's legal (full name) name are required to get a(n) assumed business name certificate.   E.g. you venture into a(n) business and you give it a trade name such as "Excellence & Associates". You will need to register an assumed business name certificate.

In San Antonio you need a resale ID ( AKA seller's permit) if you selling touchable items.  (A.K.A state id, wholesale, resale, reseller certificate, about $39 for most states).
Seller's Permit



Note: All businesses need a federal tax ID number except sole proprietors that are not employers and are not independent contractors.
An independent contractor is a self employed business person that receives more than $600 per year from anyone of his or her clients.
IRS rule: The client must issue a 1099 form to the independent contractor and the independent contractor must have a federal tax ID. However, even sole owners may obtain a federal ID and use it as a business tax ID instead of using their own social security number as a business tax ID number.
However, all other licenses that apply to sole proprietors as discussed here are requited regardless of getting a federal tax ID number.


In addition you will need a federal and a state EIN if you will hire employees. I.e., a San Antonio Federal Tax Id Number ($29)  and a(n) San Antonio  State Employer Tax Number  


Instead of filing a fictitious business name DBA Filing (about $49 plus state and legal newspaper publication fees) in Houston, Incorporate in San Antonio  or form a(n) San Antonio LLC


You have a choice to file a DBA or form an LLC or incorporate. If you will do business under your first and last legal name you will not need to get a fictitious business name.
Also note that even using your first and last name may not help you avoid filing a DBA if the name has a suffix such as "& sons" etc.



If you do form an Sole Proprietorship llc or incorporate (about $49 plus state fees for most states) your business instead of just filing a fictitious business name (dba), it will help you avoid personal liability from wrongs arising from your business dealings and you will not have to file the Houston business name. In lieu of recording a Fort Bend County trade company name (our filing service fee includes trade name registration and newspaper legal publication for 4 weeks) you can also form a corporation in San Antonio or form an San Antonio LLC (starts @ $49 plus state fee for most states & includes required documents such as bylaws for the corporation and Limited Liability operating agreement for the LLC). .
