    I want to sell my own homemade slingshots in the United States. I would like to sell them at flea-markets and online, but I don't know if I need to apply for a special license or insurance? Does anyone know how to proceed? I live in North Carolina at the moment, but will soon be moving to Virginia and would still like to sell in both states.

    I would think it is mostly the IRS you will have to worry about ... <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"><br><br>Also you might want to try and check out <a href="http://www.etsy.com." target="_blank" rel="nofollow">www.etsy.com.</a>

    First thing you want to do is check to see if they are legal in both states....then get a DBA doing business as....get a sales tax number look in to a federal number for that will be better if you plan to sell out of state , you will also have to find out about sales tax from both states and file a state tax in both states....if you want more information email me <a href="mailto:[email protected]">[email protected]</a><br>I have a small business and know the steps of setting up a business (well some information each state is different)
