Do I need to have a business license to sell art work on the internet and which kind do I get?
the answer is yes to comply with city rules
IRS does no not care
I have a question, if we sell different type of art to different country, which country rules I should refer? Local country or the particular country?
My first internet business was actually an online art gallery specializing in Canadian Inuit and native art. It's still going although not my main focus anymore. I didn't require any special license other than my business registration in order to comply with tax and to get a bank business account. This website was also my learning curve in the ways of online business.
I believe you need to go by the rules of the particular country. I'm just not sure.
I have to get a local one for where I live? When you say the irs does not care, that does not mean that sales are not income taxable or does it - I have heard some people claim that is the case. I am in the beginning stages of research for this project and do not know much regarding these things. Thanks.
How could that answer be found out. I know that when something is purchased on ebay it says for shipments to the state of california ad sales tax - what would be the best source for an accurate answer to that question?
Who did you get the business registration through - the u.s. goverment or city government?
Have you found the answer to that question? - I would like to know it. Thanks.
No you don't need a license
The internet is not regulated and hopefully it will stay that way. You can do anything you want with the exception of offering images that are licensed by another artist or organization. You can create images of celebrities or known subject matter as long as it is your interpretation and is a one of a kind original. There is debate as to weither or not you can paint an image of a celeb and then sell prints of that original without compensating the celeb.
If it were to be small business online does it also require?
It depends on the moderator,But mostly it is yes you need to meet their rules and regulations.
