What are the laws for starting a home based small business?
Question by Deana P: What are the laws for starting a home based small business?
I am a stay at home mom and am trying to make a little extra money. I’d like to do so by baking and selling my goods but I do not know if it is legal to do so without actually creating a business and if I do need to actually create a business I have no idea what steps to take and who to contact. Any advice???

Go to www.score.org/ and in the upper left hand corner, enter your zip code. On the next screen, you will get information on the nearest SCORE chapter. Call them and arrange for a free meeting with a volunteer SCORE counselor. They will guide you through the process.
SCORE is a nonprofit association dedicated to entrepreneur education and the formation, growth and success of small business nationwide and is a resource partner with the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA).
SCORE has 389 chapters in locations throughout the United States and its territories, with 10,500 volunteers nationwide. Both working and retired executives and business owners donate time and expertise as business counselors.
