Medical Billing Business license

I am starting a home based Medical Billing Business. I have got my Tax ID and have someone working on my website. I do have a question on the business license though. What kind of license is this considered and where do I get it? Is there an online site or do I go to the county for it?


Answer:
Of course it depends on your location but I'm sure they are all similar. I actually have two business licenses - one issued by our county and one by our city. Of course if you're not located in a city you only have to have the county license.

This is usually handled through your county or city department of revenue, and can usually be initiated on line. In our location of Jefferson County Alabama, the amount of the license is dependent on the revenue from the previous year. I think this year it cost us about $100 a year.

Our city license is similar - it should be administered by the City department of revenue. It usually has to be reviewed by someone but most municipalities are business friendly these days - they want the jobs and associated tax revenue a new business generates. The forms can usually be downloaded from their site. I think our city license cost about $150 this year.

Hope this helps and good luck!
