You can choose to be a(n) Crafts :

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

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

A(n) Crafts business using a fictitious business name in Dakota County i.e. you are a business that uses a DBA doing business as trade name to trade that is other than the full legal (first and last -- full name) name of a sole proprietor or a name other than the LLC or Corporation business name need a(n) fictitious business name.   For instance you open a(n) Crafts business and you name it "Superior Crafts Group". You will need to file a fictitious business name for that name.

In MN Crafts 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). You will need it if you sell or want to buy wholesale any Crafts related items, such as food, materials, or merchandise.
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 MN Federal Tax Id Number ($29) and a(n) MN  State Employer Tax Number  

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

Filing a DBA is not required if you will set up an LLC or form a Corporation. 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 Other llc or incorporate (about $49 plus state fees for most states) your Crafts 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 Saint Paul business name. In lieu of recording a Dakota 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 MN or form an MN LLC (starts @ $49 plus state fee for most states & includes bylaws for the corporation and Limited Liability operating agreement for the LLC that is required to open a business bank account). .

I need a sellers permit for a show this weekend in Manassas VA...could you get it done in a day?

Answer:If you sell crafts you must be collecting sales tax. Most states require sellers to obtain a permanent or temporary or even a transient vendor's permit, from another state that the crafts are sold or to register with the state where crafts are sold and collect and submit usually quarterly tax on sales of taxable goods, such as manufactured crafts. Thus, according to VA sales tax law, you will need a seller's permit AKA sales tax ID to service or sell Crafts. To buy Crafts accessories, food etc. wholesale, you need a sales tax id also called a seller's permit because some services require sales tax. So you need at least a dba, LLC or corporation so you can register your Crafts company as a business, the seller's permit for that and as a business, a business license and an EIN.
