Q: I want to sell digital art online through my own website. I live in Nebraska.
What tax and business law will i have to follow? When would i need to start paying taxes? Do I need a permit or anything like that? Where can i find accurate info about this?
A: The US Small Business Association might be a good place for you to start. The website of the Nebraska District Office of the SBA has tools to help small business owners get answers to their questions. For example, it looks like there is a seminar today in Lincoln, Nebraska about What's Involved in Starting a Small Business. Once you have more info, you can start making decisions about what type of legal entity to choose, which will affect how you pay taxes. You may also want to consult with a CPA and an attorney about forming your business but the SBA's website and information might be a good place for you to start. Good luck on your new journey.
