need help filling out sellers permit
Not every city requires it's own license and if it is an unincorporated city/town/area, generally you would get your license though the county. Check with your county office as well as your city office to find the regulations for your type of business and your area. If your last name is not in the title of business, you also need to register a fictitious name, in Sacramento this is done through the County finance department. The sellers permit you get through the Board of Equalization. You also need to get a permit from any city you will have a selling location in, some times this is free and sometimes it has a small fee but you do not want to get caught without one. In Elk Grove the permit is $13 but the fine for selling without it can be up to $5000 and/or possible jail time. The City and County offices should also be able to tell you the requirements for the state you are in.
