If I am running a business out of my home, am I required to have a dedicated business telephone line?

Answer: 

There are obvious advantages to having your own business phone number or phone line (one being that your business will be listed in the yellow pages); however, some telephone companies require that you have a separate business telephone line if you are indeed operating a business out of your home. You should call your local phone company to find out what requirements apply in your area.
