Hi! I turned 19 in March and decided to start a buisness and use the money to pay for college because my part time job was not cutting it and this pandemic is making it nearly impossible to get hired anywhere. I've finally decided that I want to expand and sell on my own website. As of right now I have been selling through instagram and doing hand deliveries or shipping. Its going pretty good and now I want to move on to my website. Questions:
- Do I absolutely need an LLC and a sellers permit ? I'm the only person involved and I cant afford to hire anyone. (Im selling hand made jewlery and resin art im in California)
- Can I somehow add tax to every purchase so I don't have to deal with it at the end of the year or how do buisness taxes work? I'm so scared to mess up my taxes and get into trouble.
- Do you reccomend i host my own website or use something like wix or shopify?
Thank you for taking time to help me out im still researching more and more however those are just some things I want to be super clear about so I don't make a big mistake.
