2. TAX IDs - PERMITS

All Retail Trade   businesses/entities need a business license and an EIN.



3. Saint Petersburg STATE SALES TAX ID.

Selling/Buying wholesale or retail requires a Saint Petersburg   seller's permit.


You can choose to be a(n) :

  • Sole Proprietor,

  • Partnership.
    After you decide and select your business entity, you need licensing.



Jacksonville 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 Duval County/City of Jacksonville 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 Saint Petersburg 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 Saint Petersburg Federal Tax Id Number ($29)  and a(n) Saint Petersburg  State Employer Tax Number  


Instead of filing a fictitious business name DBA Filing (about $49 plus state and legal newspaper publication fees) in Jacksonville, Incorporate in Saint Petersburg  or form a(n) Saint Petersburg 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 Retail Trade llc or incorporate (about $49 plus state fees for most states) your business instead of just filing a fictitious business name (dba), that insurs that you don't have personal liability for debts and civile liabililty arising from your business dealings and you will not have to record the Jacksonville business name. In lieu of recording a Duval County/City of Jacksonville 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 Saint Petersburg or form an Saint Petersburg 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). .
