I would like to begin to sell my paintings at local art fairs and online sites such as Etsy, $25-100.00 price range. Do I really need to set up an LLC or sole proprietorship, get a tax number and whatever else just to sell a painting or two (if I'm lucky?) Thanks.
P.S. I live in Illinois.
New job is 99% awesome. The 1% of not-awesome is that I've been told (essentially) to figure out my own state tax deductions. Help. [more inside]
I did our taxes through TurboTax. I thought they transmitted correctly. They didn't. I just realized this. So are we going to jail for tax evasion? [more inside]
Should the dealer have dealt with "Use Tax" when I bought my new car in the same state I live? [more inside]
