Planning and Zoning

Businesses that are starting up, relocating or expanding should also check with their local city and county clerk to determine if either municipality requires any licenses/permits/zoning requirements
"Even if you're starting a home-based business, the city or county clerk's office should be contacted to determine what local licenses and zoning requirements are needed. Be sure to ask both the city and county about taxes, fees and any specific requirements that might affect the proposed business.
